Today I've been working on the Access to openly-licensed resources section of the MoodleNet white paper. Please do take a look at it and add your comments and feedback! This part gives a very brief overview of copyright in light of the Internet, Creative Commons, and the shift from OER to Open Educational Practices. There's also a bit in there about 'GitHub for Education'.
There three recommendations for Project MoodleNet from this section:
- Recommendation #12: Project MoodleNet should respect copyright law while allowing educators to share their resources as freely and openly as possible.
- Recommendation #13: Open Educational Practices should be supported in Project MoodleNet by providing educators with tools to find, create, remix, and share each other’s resources.
- Recommendation #14: Project MoodleNet should provide educators with powerful functionality that is easy and pleasurable to use.
Please do give your feedback either in this thread, or directly on the Google Doc: https://goo.gl/vwWRVD. Thanks in advance for your help, and to those who are commenting without my prompting!(a reminder that the technical details of how MoodleNet will work once we've focused on the context and how we want it to work on a human level)
