UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Overseas campuses/MOOCs/SPOCs/ CPD Short Courses  The explosive growth in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and their global reach has opened up a new door to education. We need to make sure it is a door to our universities and colleges  International Education: Global Growth and Prosperity (July, 2013)  https:// www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/229844/bis-13-1081-intern 4
  5. 5. UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Overseas campuses - UK case studies  Students need to register centrally  JISC Collections in UK use Model Licence  EXCLUDES students registered at a Partner Organisation 5 A Box of Useful Knowledge (Brougham Papers, UCL Library Services)

  7. 7. UCL LIBRARY SERVICES Issues for MOOCS/SPOCS  No agreement on how to provide licenses  Registering students centrally is a challenge for Short Courses (2-3 days)  Some MOOC providers arrange licensing for content they provide  CCC (Copyright Clearance Centre (US licensing body) has MOOCS licencing solution. This puts the burden of fee payment back on the MOOC students, rather than university:  http://www.copyright.com/moocs 7  Open Access CC licences work well for MOOCS  International agreements needed to identify requirements of universities and their students  Commercial providers need to be engaged at an international level to agree Terms and Conditions  Who is responsible for leading these discussions? Solutions?

  10. 10. UCL LIBRARY SERVICES TDM  Less TDM activity is undertaken in Europe than other parts of the globe, partly because of European copyright frameworks  Publishers offering licences for TDM which many researchers deem restrictive  EU TDM Expert Group has argued for an Exception for TDM in EU copyright laws 10 LIBER TDM Workshop, London 2013  Or a broader change in the form of an open norm or an interpretive instrument
