To create an online repository, based on the Language Box
  • Created by the Faroes team in Southampton
  • It will allow course teams, tutors and staff tutors in DoL easy access to tutorial materials for all languages and levels. Central teams to distribute materials to ALs easily.
  • ALs to access materials for all languages and all levels.
  • ALs to store their own materials (and share them with others if they so wish).
  • Staff tutors to access materials for staff development purposes.
  • All users to share resources with the Language Box, a languages community repository (http://languagebox.eprints.org).
some interesting results

When looking for teaching materials for my OU group, I…

use materials provided by the CT: 89%; use the internet: 73%;

create materials from scratch: 95%, use lang. textbooks: 81%,

use materials from other ALs: 54%

Some interesting results

I store my teaching materials…

on paper: 1%, electronically: 30%, in both ways: 69%

I modify what the OU provides to suit my group.

always: 18%, often: 79%, never: 3%

I often share my teaching materials.

yes: 26%, no: 74%
