OER - Legal Matters - Webcast (05/11/2009)

Thursday, 5 November 2009 - 2pm to 4pm

This webcast aimed to highlight and clarify relevant legal issues pertaining to the creation and dissemination of Open Educational Resources. We offered a combination of presentations and question and answer sessions with a view to providing practical and helpful guidance for institutions involved in OER work. Presenters included Naomi Korn, one of JISC's IP consultants, who discussed Creative Commons licences and their application to OER projects. Although the webcast was primarily focused towards OER pilot projects that are part of the open educational resources programme, supported by JISC and The Higher Education Academy, it might also be of interest to programme managers, lecturers, tutors and support staff interested in copyright and OER production and distribution.

The full recorded webcast  is available.
