Open Media Bank: Legacy MOOC Project
The Instructional Design Team have just completed a project with the OER (Open Educational Resources) Service which, as all good projects do, started with a mysterious old dusty spreadsheet. It was a record of legacy MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) that had been developed over the years; MOOCs that hadn’t been through the robust processes we now follow to ensure that open licensed videos are logged, shared and promoted.
The project involved a lot of questioning, digging and exploring. After many weeks of licence checking, more questions, and hours spent on Media Hopper Create, we now have more than 1,200 videos available on the Open Media Bank (Opens in a new window). You can browse a huge range of subject areas such as veterinary medicine, climate change, philosophy and digital marketing to name a few!
All videos on the Open Media Bank are shared under a Creative Commons licence, available to view, download, share, reuse and remix.
This project gave us the opportunity not only to share lots of fantastic content created by academics, but also to improve our processes to ensure that the content we upload is as engaging and accessible as possible. A big thank you to Media Studio Admin Assistant Qiaojun Yan for his support with the media archive.
Watch our new video showcasing what the Open Media Bank offers, and demonstrates how you can make the best use of the resources.
