Project Overview

1.1

Project Summary

A diverse and innovative primary source digitisation and generic Open
Educational Resource (OER)
initiative for the Built Environment
, b
ased on modern (20
th

century) and post
-
modern (1980s to date)
2d and 3d architectural buildings and designs
. For the first time, this project will feature selective
original

p
lans/drawings/
m
easurements/projections/models

f
rom
both eminent
commercial architectural
practices and archive

Trust
partners
.



There is currently a gap in eContent provision of very accurate and high resolution examples

of
concept designs through to full constructio
n and structural plans
, suitably licensed or readily
accessible, for scholarly re
-
use and re
-
purposing utilising open industry standards and platforms. This
is frequently due to commercial sensitivities, IPR and protective practices.

Selective born digital
, and
analogue
-
to
-
digital
assets

will include designs for some of the most iconic, award winning and world
-
wide renown or infamous modern UK architecture such as football stadia, Fort Dunlop and the new
Birmingham Bullring.


Th
is

unusual collaboration
, inv
olving
extensive partnership
s,

seeks to create

up to
5000
qualitative
re
-
usable

Creative Commons

©
in perpetuity digital assets and
an
OER good practice tool to improve
'real world' employability skills and enhance the quality of the student learning exp
erience.
This will
include e
mbedding
the OER
into teaching and learning
in
professional and technical curricula whether
architecture, property/real estate, construction
,
planning
or

quantity surveying



primarily at
Birmingham City University and the Unive
rsity of the West of England.


T
he overall aim is to create
an
innovative generic OER featuring contemporary designs from diverse
leading UK architectural practices; combined with analogue to digital archive holdings (e.g.
Birmingham & 5 Counties
Architectural Association Trust Archives) and pilot embed into teaching
practice at both Architecture and Construction & Property Schools at different institutional project
partners.

1.2

Objectives

1.

T
he
key primary
objective
is to create an innovative generic
OER featuring contemporary designs
from diverse leading UK architectural practices; combined with analogue to digital archive
holdings (e.g. Birmingham & 5 Counties Architectural Association Trust Archives) and pilot
embed into teaching practice at both A
rchitecture and Construction & Property Schools at
different institutional project partners.

The OER will be deposited in Jorum and Merlot (Scorm &
IMS compliant).


2.

The creation of over 2000 single digital assets, incorporating Learning Object Metadata,
a
pproved by a pedagogic editorial
board

from across Built Environment dep'ts at UWE
, BCU and
CHOBE and available through an enhanced Open Repository interface (using BCU's
IntraLibrary).


3.

Minimum of 25 packs, consisting of overlays showing the design to con
struction process of key
modern and post modern
architectural

buildings and developments,
aesthetics

and style
movements
-

reviewed with learning outcomes and objectives
complying

to industry/professional
standards/accreditations and pedagogic reviews. In
collaboration with CHOBE, BCU, UWE,
RIBA,CEBE & SCHOSA.


4.

Creation and use of a Web Widget
-

this will be
actively offered
to
dynamic web sites

in libraries,
on VLEs, and on Built Environment School sites, The Architects Journal, RIBA and Jisc. The
purpose
of the

widget is primarily to
:



A
dvertise the ArchitectUS approved content



E
ncourage and facilitate upload of new content

from
future contributors




A
bility to
search and
download content



Enable feedback from

educators and
users

across the spectrum of stake
holders

)
on IntraLibrary.


Th
e above is to be achieved in ten
work packages,
incorporat
ing

the three major phases outlin
ed in
the original bid proposal and a pedagogic editorial board to help select/review resources, link to actual
learning

outcomes/professional standards and develop
a generic OER (Scorm

1.4

Overall Approach


Approach to Digitisation & IPR



Planning and strategic overview will be
guided
by the Project Steering Group
(PSG)
who held their
first meeting on 9th December 2011. Directed by the Chair of the Steering Group, Prof Stuart Brand
and Project Manager Bev Dodd (at CELT).


To hit the ground running, and mitigate risk of project time slippage, collaborative web tools (e.g.

Doodle), a project progress forum, instant messaging and social media (closed) will be fully utilised for
many aspects of project management, meetings, organisation, logistics, task planning,
communication, training needs, problem solving, monitoring and
dissemination e.g. elluminate web
conferencing,
Big Blue Button
, Facebook and Skype tools.


The Digitisation,
Metadata

and

IPR coordinators will monitor and supervise the scoping exercise
.
selection
, digitisation, repository accession and metadata entry,
IPR attributions and QA workflows.


IPR contracts

will be exchanged with commercial practices and the archive through the Project
Manager as soon as possible. With a request for an indicative list of contracted designs and works the
practices are prepared
to contribute to the project.


The ArchitectUS Researcher FTE post is full
-
time for one year (shared between 2/3 students


at
least one each from A
rchit
ecture and Property, Construction and Planning
) these project staff will be
the field researchers scopi
ng, itemising, collecting, videoing and transit packing content


for
approval / review by editorial board and transit for high res digitisation at BCU Digital Capture
Solutions service
www.bcu.ac.uk/dcs

.


The B5C
AAT Archives at RIBA West Midlands is approx
imately

300 single
paper (large format and
rolled diagrams/plans)
featuring
student
s original design work
dating from the 1930s. These are
indexed and will be digitised in several phases during the Summer 2012 t
hrough BCU Digital Capture
Solution
s

service
www.bcu.ac.uk/dcs

.

v2.0



The
2000 individual assets,
25 x overlays and generic OER will be created,
developed

and

evaluated
by the
Editorial Board working with professional, trade

and
gov't
bodies.
All selected resources, and
learni
ng

activities for the generic OER, will
need to meet one or more key learning outcomes from
Built Environment accredited cou
rses, CPD competency levels (e.g.
RIBA PEDR
-

Professional
Experience & Development Resources
http://www.pedr.co.uk/

) and professional practice excellence
standards across Architecture and the Built Environment.


Ex
amples of developments: Fort Dunlop in Birmingham, New 2012 Olympic Stadium in East London
and
redesigned peirs e.g. new Southport Pavilion.



LOM metadata framework will record relational learning outcomes and objectives tagged to each
resource.


The
25+

packs/overlays

will package complete
lifecycle

sets of some key buildings and developments

in
t
h
e modern/post
-
modern architectural movement
-

from

concept design

and specifications

to
completion
. Accessible
online
in timeline/chronological and non
-
linear
formats
. These will be
available in

plans/drawings/specs with related datasets of a

relating to key buildings


Approach to developing the generic OER


The
generic OER
will
incorporate problem based learning activities
,
scenarios,
quizzes
,
case study
interviews from Architectural Practice Directors
and
formative assessments based on real
professional
competences

and academic learning outcomes.

Geotags
and Google / Yahoo Maps
registration of all created resources will help search ability. S
ha
reville (web enabled semi
-
immersive
environment

platform
) will be
integrated within the generic OER for holistic 'real life' scenarios
'cooking' assets drawn from the individual 2000+ collection and 25+ packs/overlays.


The first PSG decided the
Pedagogic/
OER
Editorial
B
oard would need establishing very early on and
this is currently in motion prior to beginning the scoping exercise. Project staff are
being
recruited/seconded
and briefed (as of
Jan

201
2
)
. The overall approach is broken down into 10
work
pac
kages

and will evolve over time.
Upon

Jisc advice, it was agreed at the second PSG to also
visualise

end user needs and the type of interfaces and features both the open repository assets, the
packs/overlays and the generic OERs.



Student Engagement


The field researcher posts will
be

recruited from current post graduate students in Architecture and
the Built Environment.


A m
asters student will be co
-
opted from each partner School at UW
E

and BCU onto the Editorial
Board and actively
participate

in th
e approval process for digitisation selection and which assets are
then cooked in the OER.


Students from each School will act as beta
-
test
ers (grouped into Action Learning

Sets
)

on accredited post
-
graduate Built Environment course
s at UWE and BCU. It is
hoped
distance
learners through the RIBA CDP (PEDR) scheme
will also be
involved

in evaluating and
testing

the
generic OER.


The video docu
-
project diary will be created by the field researchers rand supplemented with video
reviews and opinions from OER m
ultimedia content from nominated students from the action learning
sets.


Social media will
play an active part in canvassi
n
g

opinion

about the uncooked and cooked resources
and generic OER activities
-

and provide a means for critical review, ratings and
dissemination
by and
between students ac
ross Schools and
p
rofessional bodies

we can recruit to endorse

Partnership Working


The project is a
collaboration

with
multiple

partners
-

including a minimum of 15 commercial
architectural practice content contributors.
Collaboration and endorsement b
etween project partners,
contributors and professional/trade bodies and regulators i.e.
CHOBE, REBE, BCU, UWE,
RIBA,CEBE & SCHOSA
will be sought

at the early stages of the project
(Feb/March)
. Partly to help

with the
OER
spe
cification
, especially in
selecting what digitised assets are
cook
ed and the
learning

activities forming the OER components. It is anticipated cooked assets
will

be chosen based on their
ability to clearly demonstrate areas of
their own competency
framework

and
standards

(e.g.
highlighting a specific construction technique, measurement specification or health/safety compliance
procedure).


It is hoped the ge
n
eric
OER and the other resources will be

acknowledge
d
, endorsed and promoted
by professional bodies and their own competency frameworks e.g.
essential reference in RIBA's
PEDR

(Professional Education & Development Resource).
T
his is only likely through early
e
ngagement and this w
ill be sought during Feb/March 2
012.



T
he key issues we aim to address

are
to create on
-
line resources that are truly
useful for curriculum
and
allow

students to increase their
professional, practical and employability
skills,
through
access to
a unique range.


Other i
mportant issues to be addressed, e.g. interoperability, open standards, IPR, selection criteria,
creating generic digital assets to
the IEEE LOM standard, the OER and OER learning and teaching
embed and engagement work ar
e challenges requiring on
-
going edits to this plan.


As
part of

the engagement process, we hope to encourage
commercial

sector
project
content
providers to be
more than providers of great case study
exemplars
. Especially for sustainability, we
want to deve
lop them as a network of
advocates for further contributions by
other
private sector
potential content providers
under
creative

commons licensing models.



Most trade, professional and skilled
practitioners

in built
environment

and related industries operate
in
the

private sector. We recognise this challenge and also hope the video narrative
telling

the story of
the project and interviews with architectural practices will stimulate further cross
-
sect oral

OER
developments.


S
cope and boundaries of the work, including any issues that will
not

be covered:

The scope of the
work is focussed on using
content drawn from a minimum of 15 eminent commercial architectural
practices

and the Birmingham & Five
Counties Architectural Associ
ation Trust archive held at RIBA
West Midlands
.

We hope to engage and receive endorsement f
rom trade, learned and
professional

bodies
during
the project
.
One of the challenges will be digitising/converting material (data and
designs/structures) created by

CAD software from 3D into open formats for re
-
usability (e.g. SWG and
DWG).
Advice from Jisc Digital Media especially web 3d formats will be sought early on and
throughout the project. Supplemented by skills sets within BCU. Educational Technologists hav
e been
co
-
opted onto the Pedagogic Editorial Board (1 x from Architecture
-

Jim Sloane and 1 x from Built
Environment
-

Ken Cronin) to develop the best choices from the contributor, digital
conversion/compression and end user (web
-
based) requirements.


Pr
imarily, content will be drawn from UK architectural practices and archives with the possibility of
some US involvement
(via Merlot)
or at least mechanisms and recommendations
for registering and
adding contributions from the USA (bilateral) or
transnation
al

to sustain and grow the
digital

asset
collection post
-
January 2013. Perhaps via other shared open OER repositories, search engines,
directories and engagement with wider professional and learning bodies.


Critical success factors:

Our measures of succe
ss will be


1.

2000 +
Single or multiple digital asset collection of modern and post
-
modern 2d and 3d plans,
drawings, blueprints and vectors as IEEE LOM tagged objects

2.

Sustainable mechanisms to ensure further IPR cleared digital asset accessions

3.

Encouragement of (and evidenced by) r
eal engagement

(rather than conflict) for a useful
purpose between and
across HE institutions, professional bodies and the commercial
sector/private practice
s/SMEs.

4.

Use of our

generic

OER and digital asset collection
i
n several institutions and in schools, and
in particular reuse and re
-
versioning for the specific teaching by teachers in schools and HE
institutions.

5.

Demand for more
digital assets and OER downloads by teaching institutions and practitioners
would be a cl
ear measure of success

from across
the
Built Environment
-

architecture,
environment, town planning, surveying, property/real estate, construction and measurements.

1.5

Anticipated Impact

Impact Area

Anticipated Impact Description

Maintain teaching & learning

excellence

HE institutions

We believe the impact will be
three
fold, firstly

to expand the
range of
teachers, researchers and students
able to access

high quality and relevant modern and post modern architectural
plan (in detail) online. Secondly, to easi
ly embed these assets
into other OERs and teaching resources. Thirdly, to effectively
and flexibly embed the generic OER in different Built
Environment disciplines and
better illustrate the
lifecycle

of
s
tructures and building developments

through a good s
election
of differential and
famous case study architectural examples
.
Ultimately

enhancing the use of OERs for multiple disciplines in
both classroom, distance and blended learning environments

and inspire
student
creativity
, innovation, problem solving
skills
and employability
.


Professional
& Trade
Bodies

Create the potential for

greater co
-
operation between different
sectors, commercial world, FE and HE through the
development of this generic and 'portable' OER.
Encouragement of greater use of OERs by cross
-
sector
industry members
of

these associations and bodies.
Professional bo
dies e.g. RIBA to endorse, recommend and
reference both the
digital

Related Projects

BCU has recently invested £100,000 in a new eLearning Object Repository
-

including the
development of an open platform instance wh
ich complements and will ensure economies of scale in
the technical development work. We have also developed Student Academic
Partnerships

http://www2.bcu.ac.uk/docs/media/celt/SAP_Brochure_Spreads.pdf

who will
assist

us in project
staffing,
digitisation
, student review, video narrative and the OER development.


To o
ur knowledge, there are currently no significant specific
digitisation

projects involving high
resolution 2d and 3d plans, designs and models exclusively featuring modern and post
-
modern
architecture
.


1.8

Constraints

We are working to produce the workflows, I
PR model and scoping plan/selection criteria. The problem
over time will mean the CHOBE Editorial Board and student reviewers are likely to receive a
significant amount of content not necessarily of appropriate/educational value. The LOM metadata
and taxon
omies will need to be automated as much as po
ssible using the new repository. The
contract with the
Learning

Repository supplier (
IntraLibrary

by Intrallect) was signed late Jan 2012.
Native
install to

start populating the repository is now early March 201
2. There had been some
procurement

time

slippage

but this has not affected this project plan and
work package

schedule.
Plan 'B' was to use BCU storage and an MS
SharePoint

sub
-
domain site. E
nsuring OER, widget, app
and learning technology support is curre
ntly being
prioritised

for the later phases of the project
(especially the
work packages

flagged as Phase 3 of the project) to help mitigate project lag.

The
OER will inevitably have an unavoidable UK bias but we will try and mitigate this in what 'cooked'

digital

assets are featured in the OER.


1.9

Assumptions

Availability of
BCU and UWE
staff
and students (via the SAPs programme)
to work on the project

Capability to maintain the
open
website
and BCU
eLearning

repository
for
a minimum of
5 years

Continued use and development of the
Open formats used for the 'uncooked' digital asset collection
and the 'wrapped' content within the Scorm compliant generic OER.


The main project risks have been analysed partly using the JISC

InfoNet good practice tool
kit
identifying risk, likelihood, impact and action to manage or mitigate the risk factors. All major risks we
believe are Likelihood
low
, Impact high. A BCU procedural comprehensive risk assessment
comfortably scored 'unlikely failure' level to deliver pr
oject outcomes.

Digitisation

Issues

Mitigation:

Digitisation and workflow/

whom are
most experienced with
expensive specialist large
format overhead scanners and
veteran digital conversion
experience.

Technical
Training

Mitigation
:

Project staff require little
training

e
xcept on the native
install of the IntraLibrary
repository
. This has been
factored into existing critical
first tranche admin, contributor
and user training scheduled
Mar/Apr 2012.

Field Researchers will not
need high level or complex ICT
training (e.g. ha
ndling a hand
held HD camera). Video/audio
help guides and intuitive help
for end users will be
developed.

Evaluation Plan

Evaluation is
integrated throughout the plan

including scoping
-
selection
-
digitisation
-
value to
teaching, learning & research, viability for OER 'cooking' , embed into test curriculums,
student

review/ratings, empirical usage data from repository MIS and web tools. The
project

intends to
use an

independent (Jisc) experienced evidence
-
based research unit based at
BCU, Library & Learning Resources department.


There are multiple facets of the pro
ject to be evaluated during and after the 1
5
month project
funding period
.
Early on, the project will establish the CHOBE Digitisation & Pedagogic
editorial board and workflow mechanism for assessing the quality of content at the scoping
and selection stag
es. Thus avoiding unnecessary digitisation of these 'uncooked' assets.
This process will include visual clarification to the editorial board via a virtual 'staging post'
from the remote 'on
-
site' researchers.


Ratings of both the generic OER and indiv
idual collection of 'uncooked' digital learning
assets





Engagement of Students in the process to include student review of resources by
format, source (i.e. contributor), usefulness within OER, accessibility and re
-
usability.
Including usefulness with scr
een reading and Image Enhancement software (e.g.
Jaws and Zoomify).

Feature ratings and reviews will be included.





Pilot embed within the curriculum at two different schools and institutions will be
evaluated on
-
site, and in focus groups utilising Evidence base experience and the
UKOER Impact model.
http://oersynthesis.jiscinvolve.org/wp/2011/05/17/ukoer
-
impact
-
model/

.




Evaluation of the human computer interfaces and apps, at design
/
testin
g/embed
stages.




Stakeholders will be interviewed and video diaries created following usabi
lity testing
and group sessions
.

These videos will then be added to the OER
and project blog
as

appropriate
to demonstrate the project lifecycle and academic rigour.




Review of the pattern of deployment, not just download, of the OER within teaching
provision and via open shared OER repositories like Jorum and Merlot.

Plans

The

will be led by a robust impact plan
developed by Evidence Base (experts with extensive Jisc experience of measuring impact in teaching
and learning of Jisc initiatives). Dissemination will use the Strategic Content Alliance's key
recommendations and chec

components of the OER and the open resource di

It is intended to

approach professional, trade & training bodies (including non

Sustainability Plans

B
CU commits to fully supporting, maintaining and monitoring this valuable 'raw' digital object
collection on an open portal/platform/API, along with the OER, downloadable widget and

mobile apps
featuring

'cooked' digitised assets. This follows a BCU investment in a new

repository integrated with
Moodle (our open source VLE) and the ePortfolio system Mahara. CHOBE Editorial panel and BCU
PCB will review project deliverables and continued engagement and em
bed into teaching and
learning programmes as part of BCU match funding.


Wider engagement and sustainability plan endorsed by CHOBE intends to promote and adopt

the
OER and deposit API to the wider community including professional bodies e.g. RIBA and oth
er open
learning object repository initiatives e.g.
