OU Vital – a joint project with Open University and eSkills

The Open University (OU), in conjunction with eSkills, have recently won a large government bid to set up ICT professional development provision for all state registered schools across England.

It was launched at BETT 2010 and is open to all school staff. It contains a number of items from short courses to regional development programmes. There is also an online element, which will house best practice from around the world.

The OU have asked us at Core Education to come up with a variety of online activities for them: Showcases, Case Studies, Springboards and a schedule of Hotseats and Keynotes in preparation for the launch. We have covered topics as far ranging as “Creating Deep Thinkers through Podcasting” to “eSafety” and “Cloud Computing”.

We are now entering an implementation phase of the project and Malcolm Moss and Sarah Jones are facilitating the Hotseat and Keynotes over the next twelve months. See the VITAL Website for more details.
