Jorum is a free online service providing access to teaching and learning resources, for teaching and support staff in UK Further and Higher Education Institutions.
The Jorum team is organising a series of free training events, commencing September 2009. These sessions will provide a blend of presentations, demonstrations and hands-on activities, including searching and depositing resources into Jorum, and exploring issues surrounding the creation of learning and teaching materials.
Delegates will also have the opportunity to try out the new Jorum OER (Open Educational Resources) Deposit Tool, and see examples of other tools that can assist you in creating learning and teaching resources.
The events are free to attend and are aimed at staff from FE and HE institutions who are involved in producing learning and teaching resources.
Places are limited (according to venue), and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis.
The first training event is scheduled to take place at UCLAN (University of Central Lancashire) on Monday 14th September 2009.
Further training events are being planned – so be the first to know and sign up to the Jorum Update mailing list to receive the dates when they are released.
