This project has a strong connection, through its core team with various open content and reuse projects. The most notable of these are:

An array of institutional, discipline community and individual OER-related projects in a JISC/HEA managed programme (2009-10 and 2010-11), as well as studies into the effect of OER, e.g. current research into the impact of OER.

International project aimed at gathering evidence and methods about how we can research and understand ways to learn in a more open world, particularly linked to Open Educational Resources (OER) but also looking at other influences. (Supported by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, based at The Open University (OU) working with Carnegie Mellon University).

SCORE (Support Centre for Open Resources in Education)
Based at the OU and sharing expertise in OER across a national community of practitioners, SCORE is funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). It draws on lessons learned through the operation of the OU's OpenLearn.
