  • Previously copyright was binary: Either all rights retained or public domain Click However, the affordances of technology is changing our understanding and need for Copyright Now alternative licensing options such as Creative Commons provide a range of options allowing us to reserve some of our rights . In terms of openness – CC gives us a space to operate between all rights reserved and the public domain. Naturally, when you apply a restrictive clause your work becomes difficult for others to use or build on. Recall that b y default, you retain full copyright on any of your works. Even when sharing with colleagues in digital form an understanding of copyright is quite unclear. So if someone happens upon your work in their daily web searches they will not know exactly how they can use it.
  • And finally it was adapted locally at the University of Cape Town for the South African context. What this diagram represents is the idea of an open scholar. The term ‘ open scholar ’ has started being used to indicate a new type of academic for whom ‘ openness ’ is the default approach. This academic is largely online, probably keeps a blog, makes all their presentations available via something like slideshare, engages with new resources such as YouTube, shares bookmarks in delicious, belongs to social networks such as ning or twitter and publishes some of their content in open access journals. There are powerful sentiments coming out lately in terms of education reform - The more powerful technology becomes and the more abundant information becomes, the more indispensable good teachers are The open scholar shares their teaching and learning material and knowledge of quality content and uses ideas from other OER ’ s around the world. Rather than spending a great deal of time designing their teaching materials (or tools) they can focus on pedagogy, context, and teaching. The key to all this is easy sharing and networking facilitated by open licensing and new technologies. The academic can increase their reach and visibility in the process.
