What we are doing
The project team will
Collect and analyse
data on the current plans and needs of all Australian universities around copyright, licensing and open education practices;
and disseminate an effective and practical copyright and licensing tool to assist university teachers and managers with making effective business and pedagogical decisions around online education materials and services; and
information to help the sector to develop effective policies and practices for the development and deployment of open online education in a global environment.
In 2015 the project team surveyed and collected information from managers, educators and information professionals in Australian universities about their current understanding and experiences with licensing issues for open online education. On the basis of information collected, the team is currently developing an online Open Education Licensing Toolkit. Testing and further development of the toolkit is being undertaken via stakeholder workshops being held around Australia from July to October 2016.
Who we are
The project is a joint research project being undertaken by Swinburne University of Technology and the University of Tasmania. It is supported by the Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching.
