Learning Snacks & Music Tracks: Promoting OER at German Universities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The session will introduce ORCA.nrw, a new state-sponsored OER portal and network in Germany, to sustainably anchor OER at universities and colleges in North-Rhine Westphalia. We will showcase two best practice examples of how ORCA coordinators promote OER at their institutions: a learning snack and music tracks.

The ORCA.nrw portal offers various services online, with an OER repository at its core. In addition, it provides legal information on e-learning, a community platform, and teaching development for higher education. We ourselves are members of the ORCA network which offers services relating to the state portal at the individual universities. The ILIAS and Moodle Competence Centers drive technical developments for the state portal. In addition, there are several grants that financially support instructors in the creation of OER.
Learning Snack
Explore how the instructor Dr. Jamal Groenstein learns about the ORCA network & find out how you can use the tool Learning Snacks to produce your own OER content.

OER Tracks
Are you an instructor who is producing video tutorials for your students? Are you having trouble finding good-quality music? Then you should check out OER Tracks by Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts! We worked with ten up-and coming artists from a wide variety of musical and cultural backgrounds.They compiled thirty music tracks from many different genres, styles, and sounds to support your educational video.
