  22. http://www.jisc.ac.uk/whatwedo/programmes/elearning/oer/unicycle.aspx “The Unicycle project has been an important one for

    the University as it has helped us think deeply and collectively about how we would wish to offer students Open Educational Resources. Our discussions at Academic Board on the topic were thoughtful and fruitful and, despite there being some initial uncertainties among members of the Board about making personally-prepared materials available on an open basis, we agreed that this is the way forward for universities in the 21st Century.” ! Professor Sally Brown - Pro-Vice Chancellor for Assessment, Learning & Teaching
