  10. 10. Discussion • Openly licensed photographs and videos – are these OERs? – Many do have annotations explaining context and history – lack of intrinsic paedagogy – independent learning activities and even unstructured ‘self-organised learning’ (SOLE). – independent discovery and ‘serendipitous learning’ • Adding value – comments / tags etc.
  11. 11. • Co-Curate raised awareness and understanding of copyright and Open Licenses – Huge issue/interest to community groups – Keen to use Open but cautious to contribute (at first) – Large collections of physical photographs many ‘orphaned’ in terms of copyright owner being unknown. – Layers of copyright in ‘mashups’ • Risk management – takedown policy • Ethical/legal issues working with children • Selectivity • Sustainability Discussion #2
  12. 12. Summary • The Co-Curate North East project aims to support co- production and co-curation, including use of materials from museum and archive collections mixed with informal community input. • The process can added value to OA collections; for example the addition of personal narratives to historical photographs adds rich contextual information. • The tagging and linking between related topics and resources also adds value. The creation of ‘mashups’ can mix content from different collections and can include community added content. Further information: https://co-curate.ncl.ac.uk/
