3 Hour Board Game Jam workshop held in November 2016 for the University of Edinburgh eLearning@ed forum.
The hands-on workshop and guides participants through all the steps to create a board game game using openly licensed images, and how to add variety and fun by employing different game mechanics.
OERs are digitised teaching and learning resources that reside in the public domain or have been released by the copyright owner under an intellectual property licence (e.g. Creative Commons) that permits their use or re-purposing (re-use, revision, remixing, redistribution) by others.
The workshop covers:
- the differences between copyright and licensing,
- how to identify licensed material that is free for re-use,
- how to correctly attribute the materials you use,
- how to licence your own work,
- how to create your very own board game!
Groups were provided with packs of postcard images from the University of Edinburgh Image Collections with information on the image’s source and licence. Participants then had to select which images in their pack were suitable for their needs and used the images to inspire the setting and theme of their game.
