The progress of OER adoption in the Humanities and the example of the HumBox community (TLC 2010)

Author: Lisa lavender & robert o'toole

Type: conference presentation


HumBox is an online open-educational repository for the Humanities. Created as part of the HEA/JISC Open Education Resources Programme, the aim of this one-year project has been to create a simple, powerful and effective platform for sharing a wide range of resources and establishing a widespread community of users. The project has successfully launched with over 1000 resources from a broad range of institutions, stemming from the original eleven partners.

This presentation will introduce you to HumBox, look at the experiences of the partners, and address what we can learn about the potential and future of OER in the Humanities.
