The intention to be user focussed is essential but if point 9 is to be achieved considerable additional work will be needed to bridge the presentation gap.

(9. The JISC will work to ensure that collections digitised through its funding reaches audiences beyond its own community, in particular by opening up access to publicly funded schools and libraries. It will also seek sources of funding to ensure that its digital collections can be contextualised to meet the particular needs of these audiences.)

One of the striking features of the presentation from Matthew Steggler was the wide variety of assets brought together for effective learning and teaching. There is a danger of projects having and implying a single use / subject area / interest area. As a teacher I will / want to draw on several asset collections pulling resources into relevant learning objects. As each is developed with its own look and feel this requires me to learn for each one. Common search and user interfaces could help.

Building on the previous point as the content is standards compliant surely priority should be given to a single search across all project repositories picking up on the strong messages from Thursday's presenters... access, access, access!

Q5 JISC should continue to increase its digitisation activities?

There is so much potential for the digitised materials outside the curriculum areas which would have used the analogue materials especially in the FE sector.
