Jorum: collecting and sharing Open Educational Resources


I thought I’d share the news today that a new website for Jorum, a JISC-funded service to collect and share Open Educational Resources (OER) has been launched. Jorum has been available for around five years, and this newly-launched website aims to improve the experience of using the service so that it may continue to grow and develop. By depositing OER into Jorum, a repository, these resources can be resued and repurposed throughout the entire HE community as well as the FE community. It’s free, and contains 1,000s of searchable OER that have been inspired or produced by the FE and HE communities.

Jorum can be accessed here. You can find out more about the service, and there are links to the Jorum blog where you learn about all the developments to the service. Do take a look, and send any feedback about the service, which is run by Mimas at the University of Manchester.

Jorum, if you’re wondering, is of Biblical origin and means a collecting (or drinking) bowl. It really is true that you learn something new every day.
