Licensing Data as Open Data : JISC Digital Infrastructure Team

"One of the findings that has emerged clearly from the UK OER Programme and from the UK Discovery work is that for a healthy content ecosystem, information about the content needs to be available to many different systems, services and users. Appropriately licensing the metadata and feeds is crucial to downstream discovery and use.

The OER IPR Support Project have developed this fabulous animation to introduce the importance of open data licensing in an engaging way."

Creating OER and Combining Licenses - Full

"This video is intended to help you choose compatible resources and choose a valid license for your work. Suppose you are developing an open educational resource (OER), and you want to use some other OER within yours. If you create a derivative work by adapting or combining works offered under Creative Common licenses, you must not only follow the terms of each of the licenses involved, but also choose a license for your work that is compatible with the other licenses. "

Packed up my office at BCcampus, took down the artwork, threw away the small amount of paper archives I had, loaded up the pickup truck, and closed the office door behind me. Thus ends almost 9 years at BCampus – the longest I’ve worked anywhere.

Derek Keats: Open Educational Resources (#OER) needs to encourage and promote commercial contribution vigorously if it is to mature

Derek Keats: Open Educational Resources (#OER) needs to encourage and promote commercial contribution vigorously if it is to mature | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

It is no secret that I think that the vast majority of people involved in so-called open educational resources don't think about the big picture, they just jump on the metaphorical bandwagon, and the future be damned. My biggest gripe is the widespread misuse of the Creative Commons NonCommercial (NC) restriction in licenses, and I have published on this in the literature as well as in numerous blog posts. The NC restriction has a legitimate purpose, but most uses of it do not conform to that legitimate purpose.
