Delores UKOER Project

This pages links to information about the Delores (Delivering Open Educational Resources for Engineering Design) project in the HE Academy / JISC UK Open Educational Resources (phase 2) programme. The aim of the project is to present static and dynamic collections of university-level Open Educational Resources (OERs) and other openly available resources relevant to Engineering Design. The static collection comprises expert-selected resources presented to end users in form of a blog themed around a tried and tested first-year undergraduate curriculum for Engineering Design. The dynamic collection is built automatically, utilising Bayesian filtering and rule-based classification to select and organise those OERs most relevant to particular topics.
