Reuse of ocw materials (cc summit warsaw)

  1. 1. Reuse of OCW materials Tomoaki Watanabe, Ph.D. Director, CC Japan Senior Research Fellow, GLOCOM (Center for Global Communications), International University of Japan
  2. 2. A bit of myself & this research… Director, CC Japan Senior Research Fellow / Assistant Professor, GLOCOM, Center for Global Communications, International U. of Japan A Wikipedian Collaboration with Catharina Maracke
  3. 3. Question Are OCW materials reused? Why don’t I hear about it? (Reuse = change and re-publish) Materials are there, professors are busy, and OCW can help save their time. It seems ripe for reuse on the surface.
  4. 4. Question (refined) <ul><li>Awareness is one issue </li></ul><ul><li>Is that all there is? If we promote OCW enough, will we see the OCW reuse? </li></ul><ul><li>What are the reasons? </li></ul><ul><li>Who are the potential users? </li></ul>
  5. 5. Methods -(done) Literature Review -(done but continuing) In-depth Interview -(ongoing) Survey
  6. 6. Calibration (where to focus) <ul><li>Target group: those who already know about OCW (because they published their own material, or because they are activists) </li></ul><ul><li>US and Japan comparison (US professors can access wealth of materials already) </li></ul><ul><li>Lecture Slides (not syllabus, not exercises, not lecture videos) – the type of material that is suited for reuse. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Some hypotheses Potential Benefits Increase + Use of slides in class + Use of the Internet to find course materials (video, image, etc.) + Internet & computer literacy - Teaching a unique course - Use of publisher-provided slides - Professional ethic (I don’t want to use other people’s materials) - Difficulty in searching - Technical difficulties (e.g. format conversion) - Copyright worries
  8. 8. Thank you! Questions, comments, suggestions: tomoaki at creativecommons.jp
