Along with lots of other stuff, one conversation we’re currently having is around the description of “Resource Types”. We are considering how best to describe different resources, in terminology that practitioners find the most useful when looking for digital materials to use in their teaching and learning.
The project is starting off with the list of Resource Types that Jorum currently provides. However, this has 33 options; so we’re looking to refine that list for our usage in the FE Skills Window – with our initial thinking to whittle this down to a ‘top 10’ (or thereabouts).
Here’s our first go at it …
- Web link
- Teaching notes
- Interactive resource
- User guide
- VLE Package (SCORM, etc)
- Case Study
We’d really appreciate your input on this. How does that list look to you? Any omissions you feel should be in there? Any of them in need of tweaking? What terms would you – as a practitioner – use to describe the resources you look for and use?
Please do let us know, using the comments box below (or you can email me at email@example.com)
It’s your feedback and requirements that we need to develop a solution that works best for you.

I thought I’d write a quick post, giving you a bit more detail on what we’re looking to do, technically, with the project – not too technical (although if you do want lots more info on that then please do let us know). Continue reading
Something I’ve discovered a few weeks into my time on this project is that there are a number of other projects focused on improving Jisc’s offering to the FE & Skills sector, with regards to digital resources, that strongly link with ours. Continue reading
