In the Netherlands, Wikiwijs has to be the place where all teachers of the Netherlands, ranging from primary education to higher education, can (co)develop, share, rework and use digital learning materials, published under an open license. Concerning the quality of the learning materials, Wikiwijs does not present a minimum threshold for learning materials from the philosophy that teachers are the best capable of judging the quality of these materials. Therefore, Wikiwijs only offers rating and review possiblities to make quality visible. Since the launch of Wikiwijs, several complaints were made about the quality of the learning materials, ranging from non accessibility caused by dead links, wrong metadata, to bad quality of the content. We therefore decided to define a model to assess a minimal quality of learning resources. This model had to take into account both the philosophy of Wikiwijs (as low a treshold as possible) and the practical application of it (efficient assessment of learning materials should be possible). The model is built up by several requirements, divided into the categories Must have and Nice to have. The model was used by editors during the last months of 2011, leading to some adjustments of the model.
