Challenges of the project 
• Enhance the linguistic and cultural components of OER 
• Foster sustainability through OER reuse 
• Address needs of policy makers AND educators 
• Raise awareness of risk of exclusion of less used languages from the 
OER landscape 
• Offer training to educators of less used languages, face-to-face and 
online 
• Embrace stakeholders of regional and minority languages in remotely 
located areas of Europe to gain knowledge, develop skills
3 main questions 
• How can less used languages, including Regional and Minority 
languages, benefit from Open Educational Practices (OEP)? 
• How can Open Educational Resources (OER) be shaped to foster 
linguistic and cultural diversity in Europe? 
• What policies are favourable to the uptake of quality OER in less used 
language communities?
House keeping 
The webinar will be recorded and put online on the project website 
http://langoer.eun.org/ 
Feel free to make comments via the text box along the webinar 
There will be Q/A sessions after each presentation and after the 
last one
Plan of the webinar 
• Overview of OER initiatives in less-used and minority 
languages (Anne-Christin) 
• Zoom in: example of an OER initiative of a regional language: 
Welsh (Simon)

others – 50 
– Mainly resources from curricula of vocational schools and 
HEIs (48 institutions) 
– ~2500 learning objects and ~2000 resources from course 
materials 
– ~170 000 academic hours of learning 
– 90% of resources created with support from European 
Social Funds
Repositories 
Koolielu – http://koolielu.ee/waramu 
– ~7500 entries, all pre-moderated 
– Languages: Estonian – 4900, English – 1000, Russian – 
400, Finnish – 350, German – 300 
– Resources covering general education, all connected to 
national curricula

Usability 
Koolielu 
– Registered users 11 068 
– 790 000 visits in 2013 
– Top 10 resources viewed between 1700 – 2800 times each 
in 2013

– ~40 000 downloads in 2013 
– Top 10 resources downloaded between 2600 – 4800 times 
each in 2013
Sharing our point of view: 
•Did you foresee sharing of resources in languages other than 
yours? 
•Do users have the possibility (technically) to share resources in 
languages other than yours or resources need to be in your 
language only? 
•Which is your point of view on linguistic diversity and OER 
•Should (unilingual) OER continue to exist or should we move into 
multilingual repositories?
Open Learn Cymru 
and the Development of Welsh OER 
Simon Horrocks 
Assistant Director (Development, Learning and Teaching) 
The Open University in Wales
Welsh Language Context 
Welsh language OER developments need to be understood in the 
context of the Welsh Government’s ‘ 
A living language: a language for living - Welsh language strategy 2012 to ’ 
•One of the six aims of ‘A living language’ is to ‘strengthen the 
infrastructure for the language, including digital technology’ 
•Also see the Welsh Government’s 
Welsh-medium Education Strategy
Welsh-medium OER in the context of Higher Education (1) 
Welsh-medium higher education is a key component of the Welsh 
government strategy for the sector. 
This is underpinned by the work of the Coleg Cymraeg 
Cenedlaethol whose aims include: 
‘to enrich, deepen and broaden the provision for students, 
stimulating and responding to demand from students and thereby 
increasing the numbers of students studying through the medium of 
Welsh.’
Welsh-medium OER in the context of Higher Education (2) 
The Wales Open Education Declaration of Intent (September 2013) 
is a clear statement by the Welsh higher education sector outlining 
its commitment to OEP. 
A bilingual national portal for OER is under development and the 
OER15 conference will take place in Wales.
The OpenLearn Cymru Project (1) 
Building on the vast experience and expertise of the Open 
University in open education, The Open University in Wales is 
developing a new platform called OpenLearn Cymru. This will 
provide a rich resource for OER in Welsh and/or about Wales. 
OpenLearn Cymru will take some of its content from the Open 
University’s main OpenLearn site, translating existing study units 
into Welsh. 
Some OpenLearn Cymru content is also being drawn from other 
sources and/or created from scratch.
The OpenLearn Cymru Project (2) 
Questions and challenges: 
•translating/versioning English-language OER for Welsh-speaking 
learners 
•developing/adapting the infrastructure to create/promote use of 
Welsh-medium OER 
•maximising potential for Welsh-medium OER through 
collaboration
Sharing our point of view: 
•Did you foresee sharing of resources in languages other than 
yours? 
•Do users have the possibility (technically) to share resources in 
languages other than yours or resources need to be in your 
language only? 
•Which is your point of view on linguistic diversity and OER 
•Should (unilingual) OER continue to exist or should we move into 
multilingual repositories?
Challenges of the project 
Repositories of OER from a multilingual 
perspective 
Sylvi Vigmo & Linda Bradley
Current work in the LangOER project: 
State-of-the-art investigation 
• In-depth research of existing OERs in small languages 
with primary input from the following project partners: 
Cor van der Meer (Frisian, Dutch) 
Katerina Zourou (Greek) 
Sanita Lazdiņa, (Latvian) 
Vaiva Zuzevičiūtė (Lithuanian) 
Gosia Kurek (Polish) 
Linda Bradley Sylvi Vigmo (Swedish) 
Giulia Torresin (French) 
• A State-of-the-art report will be finished by 30 April 
• To build a framework we are investigating reports, 
articles and sites for OER quality components 
• Short survey of experiences of experts of OER and OEP
Answers from experts: 
Studies on repositories of OERs 
Framing what OERs are, their conditions, features, 
•reports/papers about OER 
•surveys 
•typologies 
•research on impact 
•sharing evidence 
•repositories (e.g. EdReNe network) 
Case studies – country reports 
•OPAL initiative 
•POERUP project 
•OECD and UNESCO reports
Answers from experts: 
Studies on ROER - a linguistic perspective 
• search for different terms 
• large scale implementation of big languages exists 
• LORO 
• an "under-researched" field
Features of OERs from less used languages 
• National OER initiatives with international connection 
• Local initiatives 
• Challenging dimensions for sustainability and quality of 
OER in the state-of-the art report 
• open 
• public 
• redesign 
• adaptable 
• can be redistributed by others
Preliminary findings from investigation 
• Challenges in shared understanding of boundaries and 
delimitation of OER 
• Acknowledging the idea of OER, even if there is a 
multitude of how this is addressed 
• Parts of OER characteristics are found in the languages 
investigated 
• Design features going beyond the social, local context be 
addressed?
Questions for speakers and the audience 
• What are lessons learnt from driving initiatives in less 
used languages? 
• What are main recommendations to OER 
advocates/activists in other less used languages?

Sustainability in OER for less used languages

  • 1. Sustainability in OER for less used languages An initiative of the LangOER network Open Education Week, Friday, March 14, 2014 Linda Bradley, Simon Horrocks, Jüri Lõssenko, Anne-Christin Tannhaüser, Sylvi Vigmo, Katerina Zourou This project was financed with the support of the European Commission. This publication is the sole responsibility of the author and the Commission is not responsible for any use that may be made of the information contained therein.
  • 2. About the LangOER network European funded network (2014-2016) of 9 partners:  Fryske Academy, The Netherlands (Project coordination)  Web2learn, Greece (Project management)  European Schoolnet, Belgium  University of Gothenburg, Sweden  Jan Dlugosz University, Poland  Mykolas Romeris University, Lithuania  International Council for Open and Distance Education (ICDE), Norway  European Foundation for Quality in E-learning, Belgium  Rezekne Higher Education Institution, Latvia
  • 3. Challenges of the project • Enhance the linguistic and cultural components of OER • Foster sustainability through OER reuse • Address needs of policy makers AND educators • Raise awareness of risk of exclusion of less used languages from the OER landscape • Offer training to educators of less used languages, face-to-face and online • Embrace stakeholders of regional and minority languages in remotely located areas of Europe to gain knowledge, develop skills
  • 4. 3 main questions • How can less used languages, including Regional and Minority languages, benefit from Open Educational Practices (OEP)? • How can Open Educational Resources (OER) be shaped to foster linguistic and cultural diversity in Europe? • What policies are favourable to the uptake of quality OER in less used language communities?
  • 5. House keeping The webinar will be recorded and put online on the project website http://langoer.eun.org/ Feel free to make comments via the text box along the webinar There will be Q/A sessions after each presentation and after the last one
  • 6. Plan of the webinar • Overview of OER initiatives in less-used and minority languages (Anne-Christin) • Zoom in: example of an OER initiative of a regional language: Welsh (Simon) • Zoom in: example of an OER initiative of a small state language: Estonia (Jüri) • How OER initiatives from regional and (small) state languages are represented in the international OER scene? (Linda and Sylvi)
  • 7. Multilingual OER & OER for language learning - 3 Selected Initiatives Anne-Christin Tannhäuser European Foundation for Quality in E-Learning

  • 12. OER in Estonia Jüri Lõssenko Innovation Centre Information Technology Foundation for Education, Estonia
  • 13. Repositories HITSA Innovatsioonikeskus http://e-ope.ee/repositoorium/ – ~4500 entries – Languages: Estonian - 3625 , Russian - 375, English – 450, others – 50 – Mainly resources from curricula of vocational schools and HEIs (48 institutions) – ~2500 learning objects and ~2000 resources from course materials – ~170 000 academic hours of learning – 90% of resources created with support from European Social Funds
  • 14. Repositories Koolielu – http://koolielu.ee/waramu – ~7500 entries, all pre-moderated – Languages: Estonian – 4900, English – 1000, Russian – 400, Finnish – 350, German – 300 – Resources covering general education, all connected to national curricula – 70% of entries are references to resources in other locations – ~7% are (partially) financed by third parties
  • 15. Usability Koolielu – Registered users 11 068 – 790 000 visits in 2013 – Top 10 resources viewed between 1700 – 2800 times each in 2013 HITSA Innovatsioonikeskus – ~800 000 visits in 2013 – ~40 000 downloads in 2013 – Top 10 resources downloaded between 2600 – 4800 times each in 2013
  • 16. Sharing our point of view: •Did you foresee sharing of resources in languages other than yours? •Do users have the possibility (technically) to share resources in languages other than yours or resources need to be in your language only? •Which is your point of view on linguistic diversity and OER •Should (unilingual) OER continue to exist or should we move into multilingual repositories?
  • 17. Open Learn Cymru and the Development of Welsh OER Simon Horrocks Assistant Director (Development, Learning and Teaching) The Open University in Wales
  • 18. Welsh Language Context Welsh language OER developments need to be understood in the context of the Welsh Government’s ‘ A living language: a language for living - Welsh language strategy 2012 to ’ •One of the six aims of ‘A living language’ is to ‘strengthen the infrastructure for the language, including digital technology’ •Also see the Welsh Government’s Welsh-medium Education Strategy
  • 19. Welsh-medium OER in the context of Higher Education (1) Welsh-medium higher education is a key component of the Welsh government strategy for the sector. This is underpinned by the work of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol whose aims include: ‘to enrich, deepen and broaden the provision for students, stimulating and responding to demand from students and thereby increasing the numbers of students studying through the medium of Welsh.’
  • 20. Welsh-medium OER in the context of Higher Education (2) The Wales Open Education Declaration of Intent (September 2013) is a clear statement by the Welsh higher education sector outlining its commitment to OEP. A bilingual national portal for OER is under development and the OER15 conference will take place in Wales.
  • 21. The OpenLearn Cymru Project (1) Building on the vast experience and expertise of the Open University in open education, The Open University in Wales is developing a new platform called OpenLearn Cymru. This will provide a rich resource for OER in Welsh and/or about Wales. OpenLearn Cymru will take some of its content from the Open University’s main OpenLearn site, translating existing study units into Welsh. Some OpenLearn Cymru content is also being drawn from other sources and/or created from scratch.
  • 22. The OpenLearn Cymru Project (2) Questions and challenges: •translating/versioning English-language OER for Welsh-speaking learners •developing/adapting the infrastructure to create/promote use of Welsh-medium OER •maximising potential for Welsh-medium OER through collaboration
  • 23. Sharing our point of view: •Did you foresee sharing of resources in languages other than yours? •Do users have the possibility (technically) to share resources in languages other than yours or resources need to be in your language only? •Which is your point of view on linguistic diversity and OER •Should (unilingual) OER continue to exist or should we move into multilingual repositories?
  • 24. Challenges of the project Repositories of OER from a multilingual perspective Sylvi Vigmo & Linda Bradley
  • 25. Current work in the LangOER project: State-of-the-art investigation • In-depth research of existing OERs in small languages with primary input from the following project partners: Cor van der Meer (Frisian, Dutch) Katerina Zourou (Greek) Sanita Lazdiņa, (Latvian) Vaiva Zuzevičiūtė (Lithuanian) Gosia Kurek (Polish) Linda Bradley Sylvi Vigmo (Swedish) Giulia Torresin (French) • A State-of-the-art report will be finished by 30 April • To build a framework we are investigating reports, articles and sites for OER quality components • Short survey of experiences of experts of OER and OEP
  • 26. Answers from experts: Studies on repositories of OERs Framing what OERs are, their conditions, features, •reports/papers about OER •surveys •typologies •research on impact •sharing evidence •repositories (e.g. EdReNe network) Case studies – country reports •OPAL initiative •POERUP project •OECD and UNESCO reports
  • 27. Answers from experts: Studies on ROER - a linguistic perspective • search for different terms • large scale implementation of big languages exists • LORO • an "under-researched" field
  • 28. Features of OERs from less used languages • National OER initiatives with international connection • Local initiatives • Challenging dimensions for sustainability and quality of OER in the state-of-the art report • open • public • redesign • adaptable • can be redistributed by others
  • 29. Preliminary findings from investigation • Challenges in shared understanding of boundaries and delimitation of OER • Acknowledging the idea of OER, even if there is a multitude of how this is addressed • Parts of OER characteristics are found in the languages investigated • Design features going beyond the social, local context be addressed?
  • 30. Questions for speakers and the audience • What are lessons learnt from driving initiatives in less used languages? • What are main recommendations to OER advocates/activists in other less used languages?
