ALT host the OESIG #OESIG (but you don’t have to be a member of ALT to join). Viv Rolfe @vivienrolfe opened up the discussion. It was suggested that OESIG join forces with #OERHub and collate and curate existing resources; and promote http://wikieducator.org/GoOPEN for use and development.
Archivist advised use of open software that allowed for portability of resources when repositories disappear. Another participant suggested looking at practice in non-English-speaking communities. There was also a suggestion to support ease of use and finding, and finding ways of sustaining resources that aren’t just located in single HE institutions raising issues of branding.
