In a Nutshell – Breaking Down Barriers: Building a GeoKnowledge Community with OER

Building a GeoKnowledge Community at Mimas by utilising existing technologies (DSpace and services these being Landmap and Jorum. The project is in two parts:

1) Open-up 8 courses in the Landmap Learning Zone through Creative Commons BY-NC-SA and redesigning the Learning Zone area of the Landmap website, linking through to the ELOGeo repository at Jorum.

2) Transfer the hosting of the ELOGeo repository to Jorum from University of Nottingham ensuring the sustainability of the ELOGeo project outputs. Technical solutions will be sought in developing a specific community repository site within Jorum which will be transferable to other communities that may have a similar requirement in the future.
