Building on the success of the OER Low Countries history project, Ulrich Tiedau, Lecturer at UCL Dutch and Associate Director of the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities, has been award a £46,000 research grant in phase 2 of JISC’s and the Higher Academy’s Open Educational Resources programme (UKOER).

The DHOER (Open Educational Resources is Digital Humanities) project will turn a comprehensive range of teaching and learning resources from a series of introductory courses into Digital Humanities into multimedia and Web 2.0 enriched Open Educational Resources (OER), published on the internet and freely available for anyone. Apart from serving Digital Humanities, a distinctive subject area in its own right, the DHOER project will benefit many cognate disciplines, including but not limited to the whole spectrum of the Arts and Humanities, Information Studies, Archive and Library Studies and Computer Science. DHOER will directly cater for the needs of particular sectors of employment, including documentation, archives, libraries and publishing, and also support the larger requirements of the digital information age.

The UKOER programme, HEFCE funded and coordinated jointly by JISC and the Higher Education Academy, has been designed to support institutions, consortia and individuals to release open educational resources for use and repurposing worldwide, by assisting the development of appropriate processes and policies to make this process an integral part of the learning material creation workflow.
