O projecto Great Writers Inspire já dispõe de website próprio, onde, embora ainda em construção, são disponibilizados diversos materiais sobre autores pertencentes ao cânone literário. É também merecedora de destaque a série de podcasts do projecto, acessíveis através do portal da Universidade de Oxford ou do iTunes.
As a result of the Great Writers Inspire project a substantial collection of rich learning resources with a literary theme and a focus on engaging new students will be made available for global reuse. The materials will be related to a strong ‘Great Writers Inspire’ thread, curated by subject specialists from within the Faculty of English Language and Literature at the University of Oxford and steered and evaluated by the demands of the subject community. Resources will include audio and video lectures and short talks, downloadable electronic texts and ebooks, and background contextual resources. Collecting existing materials together and enriching them with new resources will increase their exposure, surfacing materials which may otherwise be undiscovered.All resources included in the website are under a suitable open content licence, making them suitable for reuse in education worldwide. Example end users for these materials may be:
- Teachers wishing to create richer learning resources will find a resource bank of reusable materials which can be used to enhance and facilitate learning.
- Students. The collections will offer a new perspective on a text or topic and will inspire students to go on and discover more. Students’ learning experience will be enhanced by having access to material in different formats (audio, video, text, ebooks). Access to resources adapted to portable devices will increase uptake. Potential students wishing to gain a flavour of study at University will benefit from the ‘window’ that these resources provide.
- Life-long learners with an interest in classic texts. Themed collections can offer new approaches to classic topics which will appeal to the interested self-learner.
- Resource creators. By providing access to thousands of reusable resources within the library section, resource creators will benefit from a rich source of materials when creating new resources.
