Transcript

  • 1. Reuse of OCW materials Tomoaki Watanabe, Ph.D. Director, CC Japan Senior Research Fellow, GLOCOM (Center for Global Communications), International University of Japan
  • 2. A bit of myself & this research… Director, CC Japan Senior Research Fellow / Assistant Professor, GLOCOM, Center for Global Communications, International U. of Japan A Wikipedian Collaboration with Catharina Maracke
  • 3. Question Are OCW materials reused? Why don’t I hear about it? (Reuse = change and re-publish) Materials are there, professors are busy, and OCW can help save their time. It seems ripe for reuse on the surface.
  • 4. Question (refined)
    • Awareness is one issue
    • Is that all there is? If we promote OCW enough, will we see the OCW reuse?
    • What are the reasons?
    • Who are the potential users?
  • 5. Methods -(done) Literature Review -(done but continuing) In-depth Interview -(ongoing) Survey
  • 6. Calibration (where to focus)
    • Target group: those who already know about OCW (because they published their own material, or because they are activists)
    • US and Japan comparison (US professors can access wealth of materials already)
    • Lecture Slides (not syllabus, not exercises, not lecture videos) – the type of material that is suited for reuse.
  • 7. Some hypotheses Potential Benefits Increase + Use of slides in class + Use of the Internet to find course materials (video, image, etc.) + Internet & computer literacy - Teaching a unique course - Use of publisher-provided slides - Professional ethic (I don’t want to use other people’s materials) - Difficulty in searching - Technical difficulties (e.g. format conversion) - Copyright worries
