JORUM close down: call to depositors

As announced earlier, the UK repository for open Educational Resources, JORUM, is closing down. Some of the items will be migrated to the JISC Content and App store. The JORUM team have looked through all the existing resources and given each item the status of "migrate" or "not migrate" (if it's "not migrate", then the resource will disappear when JORUM closes). They are keen for people who deposited the OERs to check their resources and see what the resource's status is. Things can still be upgraded to "migrate" if the person who owns the resource takes action (e.g. it might require updating links or making source files available) by 15 June 2016.
