Speaker: Kari Weaver (learning, teaching, & instructional design librarian)
Libraries are increasingly building collections of learning materials in electronic formats. As the availability grows, it becomes necessary to consider the long-term discovery, access, management, and local ownership issues inherent in the development and distribution of such collections. To address these issues, the University of Waterloo Library created a localized repository dubbed the Online Learning Object Repository (OLOR), which meant to house and make discoverable library-created online learning objects for broad distribution, discovery, and reuse. This presentation will explore the challenges and successes we have had in moving forward with the OLOR at the center of our learning and teaching strategy, from inception pre-pandemic and soliciting buy-in from stakeholders and colleagues, through the launch of the repository to the continuing efforts to develop learning materials of use and interest to faculty, staff, and students across the University of Waterloo community.
