Making a Portal for Digital Educational Resources: meet Wageningen Universities Library for Learning
Wageningen University & Research (WUR) produces an increasing amount of digital educational resources (DER) due to the introduction of MOOCs, online masters and the creation of course materials suitable for multiple courses. The DERs must be easy to find and access, however, they are scattered on different servers, networks, and personal drives. Hence, it is unknown which and how many DERs are available and where and how they can be found.
As a solution WUR Library, in cooperation with ICT and the Education Support Centre, started working on a new portal to search and find DER made at the WUR. This portal, should not only be a gateway via which teachers can present their materials, but should also inspire them to re-use materials from other teachers. We named the portal Library for Learning (L4L).
Within WUR a couple of repositories containing collections with DER in different data formats were already available (knowledge clips, theses and images). We were able to harvest the different repositories and transform the data into a generic data format. Via our newly created search index (L4L) teachers can search for content in the different DER collections. The DER and its metadata will be managed and stored in the native repository. Updated and new metadata records will be harvested on a regular basis.
Until now, we were able to index four DER collections in the L4L: knowledge clips (source: WURTV2), MSc thesis (source: Theses online), infographics (source: Infographics ) and practical clips (Source: Groenekennis).
Although we succeeded in indexing four collections, the road to success was bumpy and we faced many challenges. During our presentation we want to use the L4L as a use case for other organizations working on a similar project. We want to share our technical, communicative and metadata mapping challenges and possible solutions.

Topic Oriented Open Learning (TOOL) platforms: a novel approach for open education – experiences of two initiatives
Independently and unknowingly of each other, in two different subject fields, open learning platforms arose that appear to form a specific new type of platform, that address similar needs and have similar set-ups, and differ from the presently common learning platforms. We discuss the set-ups of these two platforms and the experiences with their usage and extend this to a discussion about the value that these types of platforms could offer for promotion of open education in general. This new platform type that we dubbed ‘Topic Oriented Open Learning’ (TOOL) platform, combines domain specificity with a focus on open learning. Its domain specificity is modeled after the many online domain specific commercial platforms, such as platforms for booking hotels or flights, getting travel information, sharing stuff, etc. The principles of those platforms are applied to facilitate Open Learning. They offer not only Open Educational Resources (OER), but also tools for teachers and students that support the actual learning process: tools to exercise and interact with the subject matter. Such learning platforms exist commercially already, but not yet for open education. On the other hand, existing open education platforms usually only present OER but do not support the actual learning process and are not or only to a certain level domain specific. The combination of ‘domain specificity, open, and facilitation of the learning process’ is new. TOOL platforms can be used alongside institutional Learning Management Systems (LMS), where the LMS focuses on the data connected with the institutional processes and the TOOL platforms on the subject matter. We foresee TOOL platforms to offer a unique opportunity for promoting of open education because they are not only open, but also offer specific added value to teaching and learning in specific domains that can be directly included in the daily teaching routine.

External MOOCs on mooin: Experiences on opening up an institutional MOOC platform
The MOOC platform mooin is run by the University of Applied Sciences since 2015 to host self-produced MOOCs. In summer 2016, it was also opened up for external persons or institutions searching a platform to host their own MOOCs. What began with personal requests only has established in a fixed process, supported by an own “mooin Maker MOOC” as a tutorial for external MOOC makers. Until today and still in addition to self-produced MOOCs, more that 20 external MOOCs are published on mooin.

The presentation introduces the process from an exclusively self-used MOOC platform to one that is also open for third-party MOOC makers. In addition, the results of an online survey among the external MOOC makers tell more about their motivation and ressources, but also about their experiences with the MOOC platform mooin.
