Jorum Learning and Teaching Competition 2010 - launches today!

Do you create open educational learning and teaching resources? If so, the Jorum Learning and Teaching Competition is for you.

Following on from last year’s successful competition, which generated much interest and resulted in six highly creative and invaluable resources winning places, we are pleased to announce that the 2010 competition is now open and accepting entries. The competition is hosted by Jorum and sponsored by Intrallect.

This year, we are hoping to attract an even higher number of entries, as the competition aims to highlight the work of those who dedicate their time and effort in creating and sharing resources.

The competition runs in conjunction with the ALT-C conference in Nottingham, 7-9 September. A panel of judges will be looking for exciting, innovative learning and teaching resources that have been created under a Creative Commons licence, which will be showcased at the event.

Judges will be looking for resources that fulfill a set of criteria, based on appropriateness, engagement, effectiveness and reusability. We have engaged another great range of judges this year, including Russell Stannard and James Clay, who are both advocates of sharing resources openly.

Final judging will also take on a new twist this year, as the judges will be asked to rank their top ten resources, which will then be placed on the Jorum Community Bay to allow for a public vote - so never mind The X-Factor – vote for your choice of resource to win! You will be able to vote from the 19th August, and details on how to vote will be announced nearer the time.

There are three cash prizes up for grabs, along with three commended awards. The top three prizes have been kindly donated by Intrallect.

See the Jorum website for further details.
