SCORE is an OER project led by the Open University (OU) UK. The OU has a national role in disseminating OER.

SCORE builds on the OpenLearn initiative. SCORE aims to increase sector capacity for effective OER creation and use, moving away from a supply-led approach. SCORE builds on the OU existing relationships, which are various, at an international level, such as : TESSA, OLnet, iSpot etc.

Key SCORE deliverables are:

  • 36 fellowship projects
  • 3600 hrs of OER reflecting sector needs
  • 18 engagement/dissemination events
  • enquiry-based support and advice service
  • ‘vibrant’ web 2.0-based virtual community
