Open Educational Resources


Welcome to the initial pilot site for the Sesame project, which is aiming to produce a rich and sustainable source of educational resources from the work of the University of Oxford Department for Continuing Education's weekly class programme.

Resources on this site have been developed, in the first instance, to support students studying weekly classes, but will subsequently be released as open educational resources (OER) that can be used by adult learners and their tutors globally.

While we will maintain the site for the duration of this term’s teaching, the site is under development and is likely to change significantly over the coming months. If you have any queries about the Sesame project, please contact the Principal Investigator, Sean Faughnan, at: or if you have questions about the site, please contact the Sesame Project Manager, Marion Manton, at:
