Experiences with licensing of OER

  1. 1. Licensing OER Experiences Robert Schuwer
  2. 2. Agenda • Selection of license • Process of copyright clearing • Lessons learned
  3. 3. CC-BY Hester Jelgerhuis SELECTION OF LICENSE
  4. 4. Ownership • For employees: • Ownership of learning materials are transferred to OUNL • For external authors: • Copyrights of learning materials are transferred to OUNL • For all courses a registration is available of copyrights for components
  5. 5. Selection: • NC: wish of the OUNL • Unclear what NC includes • Solution: description on website
  6. 6. Description NC: allowed • (re)use of the course materials by learners for their own development; • use of the course materials (whether or not in edited form) by teachers for their lessons, given to educational institutions which are publicly funded.
  7. 7. Description NC: Not allowed • use in legal entities affiliated to educational institutions with a commercial purpose, • Postgraduates (PAO) education • use by commercial companies
  8. 8. Comparison • Dates back to 2011 • Aim: what license is used by members of the Open Courseware Consortium? • 201 sites viewed of which 82 sites were not taken into account (remains 119 sites)
  9. 9. Result
  10. 10. CC-BY Hester JelgerhuisCC-BY Hester Jelgerhuis PROCESS OF COPYRIGHT CLEARING
  11. 11. Process
  12. 12. 12 Is the original course produced before 1997? Does the original course have literally reuse of texts that is used in the open course? Is the author an employee of OUNL? Are images of the original course used in the open course? Is software of the original course used in the open course?
  13. 13. CC-BY Hester Jelgerhuis LESSONS LEARNED
  14. 14. Lessons learned (1) • Registration of copyrights is an asset! – Immediately clear who are copyright owners • Acquiring permission to publish is relatively easy – In most cases permitted – Sometimes conditional: • one-time redemption • Only permitted for this site, no reuse • Not printable • Supply weblink to site of owner
  15. 15. Lessons learned (2) • Important to relieve this burden for the author – Support from knowledgeable experts on copyrights invaluable – Form worked well
