Abstract

One of the strategic objectives of the Open University’s ‘Students First’ policy is ‘income diversification and cost reduction’. A key part of this is an increasing drive to reduce the cost of module production, with one approach being the use of third-party materials is modules. This project explores the use of third-party materials in two recently-produced psychology modules. The project gives examples of effective integration of third-party content through good learning design, examples of the costs and benefits of using third-party materials (including staff workload), and data on student satisfaction with module materials that incorporate third-party resources. Note that the project focuses on audio-visual resources, rather than third-party textual content.
