Looking at setting up aggregator to get RSS feeds into blog to provide update of latest resources in OpenJorum and other sources - this provides a more sustainable community view.

Top three hoped for changes in JorumOpen: GEES don't appear at top level of any JACS codes, hoping that subject schemes are revisited; best practice scope notes on use of fields in upload tool; problem with link only records - only button 'export resource' sends you zipped link doesn't take you to resource ; page generally confusing

Tracking: considering adding to back page request for feedback; this presents an opportunity for qualitative information

Versioning: project has thought carefully about this- realise that you can't control verisoning beyond local; some reservations about how OER-licensed resources and versions work with sensitive/ rapidly changing topic

Versioning and duplicate copies: thought about multiple copies in many places but eventually decided to have stuff only in one place - some stuff in OpenJorum or in Institutional Repository

Due diligence and provenance data - if OER pursued legally and take down policy not enough - project considering how and where to keep this data - where does this go?

Licensing and cover pages: included cover page and back page to resources with acknowledgement and detailed license info. Also encouraging partners to look encoding license information into images etc.

Licensing: complex licensing issues because of materials involved - some logos; some diagrams from publishers; resource under one license and elements of them under specific (restricted) licenses

Materials are well branded and polished - partners engaged institutions with benefits to institutional profile

Jorum upload- so far using upload tool; this has been done by subject centre but this is now also being adopted by some partners directly

JorumOpen: Concerns over lack of guidance about how to fill in information into OpenJorum tool; lack of institutional field; noting people using fields in very different ways

As a project they aren't using a central repository. Project partners provide items/ links. Three using institutional repositories and three providing materials being uploaded directly to Jorum

Moved to JorumOpen as central repository; use of UPlaCe diminished; concern though about being able to showcase GEES specific content in JorumOpen
