  • 10 years ago we thought it was wonderful to be able to create a powerpoint for our lectures and put them up on the VLE. Then came the invention of mobile phones and mp3 players so students could download not only the images but the audio too. Then came social networking, facebook, myspace…..and students uploaded our lectures and materials to these sites….
  • It’s about NOT reinventing the wheel, it’s about sharing with colleagues and peers, its about finding aspects that would be useful in your own teaching and making them your own – within the licence.,
  • The background is a recent investment in the UK in Open Educational Resources. A one year project we were involved in was one of 29 in the HEFCE (www.hefce.ac.uk) funded UK OER pilot programme which ran March 2009 – March 2010 The projects were administered by the Joint Information Systems Committee (www.jisc.ac.uk)and the Higher Education Academy (www.heacademy.ac.uk). Phase 2 of OER was announced, with an extra 4 millions being committed in a climate of austerity, thus representing a significant policy movement in favour of OERs in the UK. OER3 was announced last month
  • Using technology to capture resources for learning and teaching There is emerging evidence that 50% of staff time/resources on preparation for teaching can be saved by engaging with OER This recent blog post sets out come compelling evidence for students using OER and that an OER approach can save time and money. The OU has also published work which indicates that student engage with OER prior to enrolling on the course, and only enrol when they know they can pass – so OER can improve retention rates at University.
  • IPR is made up of Patents, Trade marks, Designs, and Copyright. In the case of OERs, Copyright is the most key IPR relating to OER. The others protect designs, functionality and appearances. It’s worth looking at the intellectual property office website for further information
  • OOER – 17 partners (including the RVC) – toolkit PORSCHE – 2 partners – in collaboration with NHS and looking at the technology ACTOR – 5 partners (medical schools) – community building on the work of the PORSCHE project outcomes MEDEV and OVAL = Nick will talk about
  • The best way to safeguard yourself and your organisation against copyright infringement is to develop appropriate policies, advertise the policy clearly, train everyone in how to implement it, and follow it. For example, if you have a policy which says that ‘this material has been produced to the highest possible ethical standards and anyone with any concerns should contact xxx in writing after which the offending material will be removed within 10 working days pending investigation’. Then if someone contacts you, do what your policy says. Alternatively, you could just increase your annual insurance premiums to give you greater liability insurance in case of a breach (more on risk in a moment). Together with policies you could also use disclaimers: ‘the material provided on this site has been checked according to xxx however no warranties express or implied…’
  • A licence is simply a legal statement saying what you can and cannot do with the copyright works. Some organisations (such as the Copyright Licencing Agency) use licencing schemes (standard legal clauses) which are well recognised. This makes it easier for owners to share, for users to understand the rules of use, and for both parties to observe protocol. Creative Commons provides some well-recognised licencing schemes.
