6.3 OU Business Case

A full business case was developed for a project to integrate Reference Management tools into the Open University’s learning environment. Some key parts of the business case are shown here to illustrate the reasons for going ahead with the project.

The OU Business case was built around many of the issues outlined in Section 3 and Section 4 of the toolkit. It started by stating:

“There is a real need for students, course and programme teams to be able to create, manipulate, manage, organise and store a range of citations and bibliographic references in required discipline specific styles and formats within our current OUVLE tools. It is particularly important to support increasing numbers of students who are studying on courses requiring production of larger assignments and projects, including work-based learners.”

Further extracts from the OU Business Case are available in Appendix A.
