Our Background

Jorum is a Jisc funded Service for UK Further and Higher Education, to collect and share Open Educational Resources (OER), allowing their reuse and repurposing. Jorum is the first port of call for 1000's of resources, all shared and created by those who teach or have been inspired in the FE and HE and professional skills community. Jorum is provided by Mimas, part of the Jisc Digital Resources division; and is the UK's largest OER repository, with collections growing daily.

All of the resources shared are created under a Creative Commons licence.

(And, in case you were wondering, the word ‘Jorum’ is of Biblical origin and means a collecting (or drinking) bowl!)
