How do we wrap our OER resources?
We are getting to a point where most of our partners have got a large amount of their OER resources ready and we have to make a decision on just how we ‘wrap’ our OER before uploading.
We have already decided not to use a common ‘design’ or ‘look’ to the resources across all the materials as our partners want to retain their institutes logos and corporate design on their own material. There is also a very wide range of material, that will be delivered in wide range of ways including: JorumOPEN, Institute Repositories, YouTube & Flickr.
But all the same it would be good if we could agree across the partners on some basic metadata and wordings that could be used within all of the c-change OER materials.
Currently we are thinking that this should include:
- Title of Work
- Author and Institute
- Date of creation or last updated
Credits, Terms & Conditions:
- Details of CC license with link to Creative Commons Website
- Details of any other 3rd party licenses are within the work
- Acknowledgements to the programme, project and funders
Should it include a ‘Take Down Policy’? We are discussing this, but are tending towards the view that only the repository can provide that and not the item itself.
Then there is the question of how this information is best kept with the item. Certainly it can be put into a page and held within the resource, but I would really like to consider also putting this data into the file-tags so that it is also held within the file itself.
