New Creative Commons Compatibility wizards released… well almost

JuneHedges24 June 2011

JISC Legal and the OER IPR Support Project today announced the release of new wizards that have been developed “to help people understand the range of Creative Commons licences which are compatible with each other when they are blending Creative Commons licensed resources to create open educational resources or any other resources”.
There seem to be some teething issues, but the tools should soon be available here: http://www.web2rights.com/OERIPRSupport/creativecommons/

Further information about the OER IPR Support Project, including access to their suite of existing tools, is on the project site: http://www.web2rights.com/OERIPRSupport/

Lunchtime webinars

ManYang10 June 2011

We are going to run three lunchtime webinars during June and July, all on Thursdays from 1.00pm to 2.00pm.

The first webinar will be on 23 June, and is focused on rights and licensing issues in supporting OER in an institution. The second webinar on 7 July is designed for academic developers and those responsible for accreditation schemes. The third webinar on 21 July will target individuals who are interested in seeking HEA accreditation.

Each session will begin with a couple of short presentations from the project team to introduce the topic, and lead to a series of questions and discussion from the participants.

The web link to the sessions will be posted here near the event.

Dissemination plan

ManYang3 June 2011

We are now planning our project dissemination over the next two months. The major event is the CPD4HE workshop which will target resource users and focus on research, values and digital literacy. The date of the workshop is now confirmed on 12th July 2011. We have invited David Kernohan from JISC to give a presentation at the event. An outline of the programme will follow soon.

With the support from HEA/JISC, we are also planning three lunchtime webinars targeting three groups of audiences: educational developers and programme providers, academics and individuals taking accreditation, and librarians. Date and title of each webinar will be announced when finalised.
