Human Resource Policy • Incorporate the development of OER in job descriptions. • OER produced by faculty members should count towards career advancement. • OER production and publishing would be recognized and given similar credit as peer-reviewed publications • Universities should allow time allocation for faculty to produce OER materials. • Staff involved in OER production would be eligible to receive OER grants (when available).
    21. 21. 4. File Formats • Release content in formats best suited for interoperability and re-use and are searchable and indexable by search engines • Content should be made available in a file format that allows anyone to natively and directly edit the content.

The type of file format varies by type of media. • All new source code developed or created with TAACCCT grant funds will be released under an open license acceptable to either the Free Software Foundation and/or the Open Source Initiative.
