World War One: Continuations and Beginnings will surface the highest quality OER on this historic event through a set of cross-disciplinary thematic collections that reappraise the War in its social, historical and cultural context. Each collection will also include expert commentaries created by some of the most notable academics in the field of World War One studies and related disciplines. Alongside these thematic directory areas, the Open Education Resource Library will offer dynamic feeds of relevant resources from the wider OER community. A series of revisualisations will showcase the full potential of using open material to seed academic debate through virtual world simulation, agent-based modelling, info-graphics and KML layers. @Arras95, an innovative social media campaign will explore the possibilities for crowdsourcing OER and raise awareness about the project.

  • Duration: Feb 2012 - Jan 2013
  • Supported by the JISC WW1 commemorations programme
