  • Quick intro Quick recap of what open educational resources can mean
  • 10 years ago we thought it was wonderful to be able to create a powerpoint for our lectures and put them up on the VLE. Then came the invention of mobile phones and mp3 players so students could download not only the images but the audio too. Then came social networking, facebook, myspace, YouTube…..and students uploaded our lectures and materials to these sites…. What if practitioners had copied and pasted copyright images/videos from the internet? The student’s upload of your presentation to other sites could be considered as secondary infringement of copyright.
  • So what next? What are the next steps? How we can safely use third party materials, and in necessary cases, how do we evidence consent exists ?
  • There has been a huge shift over the last few years and we are one of four projects in this strand (funded by JISC) dealing with using published content.
  • From the publishing side we have JISC Collections and Elsevier. JISC collections have expertise in negotiating national licence agreements and Elsevier publish 2,000 journals and 20,000 books - many of them text books. Rightscom have links to all publishers and they have expertise in trading and protection of intellectual property rights and digital content. They recently undertook research on how to create an automated 21st century rights environment for digital resources. The Royal Veterinary College will provide an opportunity to conduct a needs-assessment of both academic and student OER users. Work will be coordinated within the RVC ( and also Nottingham vet school) by ‘student researchers’ employed on a retainer basis to organise focus groups, liaise with academics, promote specific resources to target audiences and feedback to the project. This feedback and the evaluation of the work will inform investigations in other subject areas. Newcastle University will provide technical expertise for the project and will then test the business models in Medicine and Dentistry.
  • It’s a big one… Full stakeholder analysis to identify content for ‘open’ release; Technical investigation of approaches including surface and deep linking to publishers websites, weblog analyses, sharing published work elsewhere – addition of social media interaction and voting capabilities (so OER are rated by users and book sales increase). Explore, test and document business models for embedding third part rights; Test the approaches with students and staff who generate/use OER; Significantly enhance the OER collection by making the resources totally discoverable; Development of policies, licences and procedures. It’s a big project – with a large scope. It’s about dealing with one of the biggest barriers – using the most appropriate content without fear of risk.
  • …but if we can do that – as educators – it really would be the icing on the cake!
  • Thank you. On the website you can find full reports, a beginners guide to OER, and the Risk-Kit. You can find information about OER3:PublishOER, and OER2:PORSCHE and ACTOR projects, and find an increasing number of case studies. You ’ ll also find some information about Consent Commons there.
