JISC funding for WW1 OER

JISC invites institutions to submit funding proposals for a project to create innovative Open Educational Resources (OERs) around the theme of World War One.

The deadline for receipt of proposals in response to this call is 12:00 noon UK time on 5th December 2011.

Funding of £80,000 is available for a single project starting from January 2012 for 6 months. The project must be complete by July 2012; however institutional contributions may sustain the project in the embedding stage of the project until December 2012.
