Transcript of "Unlocking the CeLLS"

  1. 1. Unlocking the CeLLS<br />This work is licencedunder a Creative Commons Licence except where explicitly exempted.<br />UK Centre for Bioscience logo © University of Leeds. All rights reserved.<br />as part of the OeRBITAL PROJECT<br />Chris Taylor<br />c.d.taylor@leeds.ac.uk<br />@chr1staylor<br />
  2. 2. OeRBITAL<br />OER discovery project<br />http://heabiowiki.leeds.ac.uk/oerbital/<br />Building discipline-specific collections of existing open resources<br />Group of 10 Discipline Consultants mining known OER repositories and search engines to populate MediaWiki<br />Using professional/network links to uncover unlisted potential OER<br />3 Learning Technologists to advise and assist<br />Open educational Resources for Biologists Involved in Teaching And Learning<br />
  3. 3. CeLLS project<br />Collaborative e-Learning in the Life Sciences<br />JISC/SFC Transformation project, 2005-2007<br />http://www.jisc.ac.uk/whatwedo/programmes/elearningsfc/cells.aspx<br />Produced a significant number of high quality learning resources<br />Uploaded to Jorum as per project requirements<br />Held under Jorum Institutional Licence<br />Not appropriate for our OER collection<br />
  4. 4. CeLLS Preservation Society<br />One of our DCs discovered the CeLLS resources hosted in Jorum<br />Discussion at: http://heabiowiki.leeds.ac.uk/oerbital/index.php/Molecular_biology<br />Impressed by their descriptions* and flagged up for potential inclusion in OeRBITAL collection but unable to access<br />Initial investigation revealed original steering committee member sat in next office(!), who was able to offer contact details<br />Cunning plan formed to seek to re-release resources under Creative Commons<br />
  5. 5. Justification<br />Project originally funded by JISC<br />Designed to be used by HE<br />Ethos of project v.similar to OER, from final project rep and final sustainability plans:<br />Designed for reuse and adaption, for collaboration across sector for further development of resources<br />
  6. 6. Working with the IPR Support Team<br />Needed advice on most appropriate course of action<br />Number of v.useful exchanges with Naomi C<br />Suggest caution, solid risk management approach, exhaust all reasonable avenues<br />Clear documentation trail<br />Good trial for IPR Risk Mgmnt Calculator<br />http://www.web2rights.com/OERIPRSupport/risk-management-calculator/<br />Low - medium<br />V.useful advice offered for initial contact email<br />
  7. 7. Following the trail<br />Project website no longer live<br />Most of original project team either retired, part of organisations that no longer exist (Interactive University) or have moved to new institutions<br />Trail 4 yrs (c)old<br />
  8. 8. Following the trail cont.<br />Project managed overall by JISC, funded by SFC, managed by Dundee University initially, but transferred later to Napier:<br />http://learning.covcollege.ac.uk/content/Jorum/MET_Enzyme-inhibition_LM-1.2/special_ack.htm<br />Institutions involved<br />Scottish Colleges Biotechnology Consortium<br />Napier University<br />University of Dundee<br />Interactive University<br />Scottish Qualifications Authority<br />All released material<br />
  9. 9. Following the IPR trail cont.<br />SFC did not choose to retain copyright<br />From investigation, IPR appears to remain with the individual institutions that released the resources, so potentially would have to go to each to request re-release<br />
  10. 10. Encouraging signs<br />All original project members and funding/management bodies able to be contacted have strongly endorsed the move<br />(Unconfirmed, but…) no third-party material included in resources – project policy<br />Dundee looking at reviewing its licensing policy for material in Jorum, and Creative Commons looks to be a front-runner<br />Have offered input on this<br />Member of our Advisory Board is Dean of L&T in relevant dept at Dundee<br />Have now managed to obtain project documentation on:<br />IPR Management Policy<br />IPR Operational Guide<br />Investigation is ongoing…<br />
  11. 11. Classification as Orphan Works<br />Last resort<br />Doesn’t seem appropriate currently, based on the contact we’ve now made and what we’ve uncovered so far<br />Although, given that the Interactive University has now closed down, something to consider…though further investigation req’d<br />
