The Skills Hub is a repository of open educational resources (OERs) for students, schools, researchers and the community, which aims to develop users’ study skills.  In December 2013, University funding was awarded for the Skills Hub: Review, Redesign and Rebuild project to evaluate the Skills Hub content and enable further development. This presentation details the methodology of the project and highlights key findings from the research.  Recommendations for future development of the Skills Hub are made and areas in need of  further research are identified.View full abstract [PDF]
