We’ve been having a bit of a rocky time with some of our platforms as the activity ramps up wildly toward the start of semester and the head of the year. We now have 92,995 items in Media Hopper Create, 8300 of those have been uploaded since the 1st of September.
That’s on top of the 63,000 items we have in our Replay Lecture recording system. That’s a huge collection of home grown, born digital content. Worth blasting and shouting about.
3470 of the items in Media Hopper have the open, creative commons licenses on them. I think we could do better on this. If you have ideas how to encourage more colleagues to choose that option to make their materials open educational resources (OER) for others to use, that will help the university towards its commitment to the UN sustainable development goals.
Have a sweet new year.
*Update: after writing this post on 18th Sept our media platform ground to a halt and our VLE crashed. I assume this is my comeuppance and must duly atone.
