Creating value from open data

The “Creating value from open data” project set out to bring universities and sector organisations together to examine how the value of open data to UK higher education institutions could be developed. The key aims were to explore the opportunities, benefits and challenges of open data, develop a demonstrator application and set out a roadmap for further work. Via a series of scoping workshops, potential was recognised for applying open data in areas such as student journey, space management and learning analytics. An open data mashup day brought together university managers, data experts and students to develop ideas for using open data to enhance the student journey and an app to help students to source course books was selected for development in phase two with support from Jisc.
