Cardiovascular effects of exercise training: How does your heart benefit when you exercise?
Cardiovascular effects of exercise explained for the general public, including simulations, videos and scientific papers. Used to inform and provoke the general public live healthier and learn more. The concepts explained can facilitate the teaching and learning process. Some of the concepts covered are: Risks factors and causes of cardiovascular disease. The way cardiovascular disease causes chronic kidney disease and problems with other organs such as the lungs. The videos created explaining heart adaptations can also be used to facilitate the teaching and learning process.

Education as a pillar of Open Science
Education does not feature as one of the 8 pillars of Open Science, as defined by the European Commission, and this is a problem when considering the full range of activities which Open Science should embrace. There are also challenges in the UK in introducing the ‘Open’ concept to educational materials as these, unlike research outputs, do not fall under the Open Access requirements of the REF (Research Excellence Framework) or the TEF (Teaching Excellence Framework). UCL (University College London) has embraced the concept of research-based education and ‘Open’ approaches are helping to support this agenda. This paper will look at an initial UCL Scoping Study for Open Education (2016) and the current version of the UCL Open Education Roadmap (2017). The second part of the paper will look at the work of UCL Press, the UK’s first fully Open Access University Press, in delivering Open Educational outputs. It will start with the traditional textbook approach and then look at the development of the Press’s own textbook platform based on the BOOC (Books as Open Online Content). The paper will conclude by summarizing the challenges and benefits of Open Educational Resources as part of the Open Science agenda.
