The DYNAMED project is an initiative set up to provide multimedia teaching resources to meet the demands and requirements of our student population. The intention to open up resources to the wider world has always been a significant, but secondary, desire. Now with the availability of a sizeable body of work the next steps we take to make this happen become increasingly important.
Work with our students, aligned with the literature, has identified video resources as an extremely popular and valuable addition to their study material and we have been developing increased numbers of these resources in recent years. 
A key factor in the success of this initiative have been the implementation of a student committee to help drive the project – to propose and prioritise the creation of resources and to manage the roll out of the content.
Now the intention to make these teaching resources available to a wider audience factors about more intense quality assurance and peer review have come to the fore. This has dictated the creation of a secondary ‘peer led panel’ with a mandate from the wider institution.
This poster tracks the stages involved in making internally created materials ready to be ‘opened up’ and looks at some of the elements put in place for the creation of further teaching resources with the explicit intention of making them ‘open resources’
The juxtaposition between those resources created for the local student environment and the benefits they may provide to the wider world prove to be an important consideration at the development stage.
