Coventry University Open Media Courses

A space to collate evaluation information about the Open Media Classes at Coventry University.


Aiming to examine and evaluate the Open Media Classes initiative at Coventry University, with particular reference to Phonar, in terms of the benefits it has enabled Coventry to realise and the possibility of the transfer of the model to other parts of the sector.

Aiming to work with the team to support and enhance their processes and practice, and make recommendations and to work with Jisc on a range of advice and guidance products based on ongoing evaluations and findings.


The objectives of the evaluation are:

i. To gain and refine an understanding of the work of the Coventry Open Media team, in terms particularly of organisational, pedagogic and technological decisions.

ii. To tell the story of the project in terms that makes what is being learnt relevant to the wider sector.

iii. To make recommendations to the project and to Jisc about the support and delivery of this form of open learning.


Evaluators: Lou McGill, Educational Consultant and Tim Gray, Academic in Fine Arts and Animation
