Developing a quality model and designing a search tool for high-quality Open Educational Resources

Session Table Name: ROMA

We present a novel approach to establishing a quality model for OER, based on quality aspects that are considered to be universally accepted in any educational resource, as well as a number of aspects that are dependent on the goal and preferences of the educator that is looking to adopt OER to his or her teaching. We approach the concept of quality as something that is dynamic, constantly changing and time- and purpose-dependent. This means that determining whether a resource is of high quality is a continuous process that changes with technological advancements, current trends and the experiences of a user.
Determining what aspects of quality are measureable serves as a basis for designing an automated search tool that is capable of searching through multiple OER repositories simultaneously and evaluate large amounts of OER on relevancy, and a range of other aspects that can define the quality of the resources. We will engage with the participants of the World Forum to discuss such a design and to get feedback on our approach to evaluating quality of OER.
The participants will be discussing topics regarding the quality of OER, to gain insight into recognizing quality of OER and into requirements of an automated search algorithm capable of finding high-quality resources. These topics include: which aspects of OER are accepted as general measures for high quality; purposes for which someone might search for OER and what aspects of resources label them as high quality for those purposes; properties that should be evaluated by an automated search algorithm in order to recognize high-quality OER; which OER platforms and repositories should be evaluated by the search algorithm. The discussions will serve as the basis for determining which aspects of OER make it a quality resource and to develop an search tool capable of quantifying quality.
