Open content licensing for educators is a free online workshop designed for educators and students who want to learn more about open education resources, copyright, and creative commons licenses. The course materials were developed as a collaborative project by volunteers from the OER Foundation, WikiEducator, the OpenCourseWare Consortium and Creative Commons with funding support from UNESCO. The course will provide prerequisite knowledge required by educators to legally remix open education materials and help institutions to take informed decisions about open content licenses. This free workshop is sponsored by the OER Foundation, the COL Chair in OER at Otago Polytechnic, the UNESCO-COL Chair in OER at Athabasca University and Creative Commons Canada. The workshop is scheduled for 20 June - 3 July 2012. to coincide with the UNESCO World OER Congress in Paris. Participants will need approximately 1 hour for each session of the workshop at a time which suits your own schedule. The workshop is divided into 5 sessions each spanning two working days.

Henri Pirkkalainen - OER internationalization barriers

Henri Pirkkalainen - OER internationalization barriers | Ben's Favorite Sites for Networking | Scoop.it

Currently, there are millions of learning materials on the web, some structured in repositories and databases, some just hidden on the web as part of personal homepages. This sounds extremely promising in terms of internationalization, which could be seen to include creation and sharing of educational resources that is followed by adaptations of these resources to new contexts. But is this really taking place on a large scale? - No- But why not? This we will be investigating within this article as well as clarifying our interpretation of internationalization of OER.
