SWAPBox is a JISC funded initiative to create repository for storing, managing and sharing teaching resources on social policy and social work. It can be used to share almost any kind of resource: handout, exercise, slide presentations, audio recordings, videos.
The project will evaluate the use and reuse of open educational resources, and encourage the further sharing of learning resources through collaboration with a range of institutional and work-based partners.
The project is a consortium led by the Social Policy and Social Work Subject Centre (SWAP) with the Social Care Institute of Excellence (SCIE), the Institute for Research and Innovation in Social Services (IRISS), the Centre of Excellence in Interdisciplinary Mental Health (CEIMH) andthe Centre for Human Service Technology (CHST), University of Southampton.
The project uses EdShare, an open access educationally focused repository.
