Links to the SCORE Microsites collections of OER resources

These two portal sites to open educational resources were created here in IET in 2012 with funding from the OU's SCORE project and the Higher Education Academy,

They are aimed at post-graduate research students internationally, but after 6 months of being 'out there' it looks like R2R has found a niche, but DS hasn't. One of the problems with 'digital scholarship' as a title is that some international readers assume it means 'funded scholarship' and are disappointed to find that it's just another collection of resources.

Are we heading for OER inflation I wonder?
