ABSTRACT
This Paper reports our research on how open educational resources (OER) should be labelled not only with social tagging but also for skills profiling. We have previously reported the need for wider use of skills profiling : as a practical way forward for very-low- cost massive-scale prior learning assessment and recognition (e-Type-3 PLAR). The result from tagging for skills profiling is that OER become suitable for a personalised curriculum and better fit-for-purpose. And all this at no cost to the institution.

Keywords academic profiling · no cost · PLAR · tagging OER · user perspectives
