DAY 3 (Wednesday - April 28, 2009)

(Comment.gif: Continue Working on Your OER Teaching Resource!)

Adding an Image

Add a self-portrait (i.e., your picture ~ approx. 300 pixels) to your WE User Page:


Attribution for Images

You'll notice in the Flickr Creative Commons page, there are several different databases of images based on which Creative Commons copyright license being used. To keep things simple, I only search in the first database, the Creative Commons Attribution set, or CC By. If you take an image from there it is very important that when you upload it to Wikieducator, you attribute the original author - as per the CC By license requirements. The simplest way to do this is to include the link to the Flickr page from which you took the image. Place that link in the Description box as you upload to Wikieducator. This would be the bare minimum. It is better if you give attribution by name as well. Use the Flickr user's user name. Include these details everywhere you use the image.

As for Archive.org There is a vast range of materials there and all of it has a variation of a free license. Be sure to read the licenses of the content you use and comply with the requirements. Alot of the content there is to the Public Domain, which you are free to use without needing to give attribution. But always give some sort of reference to where the material is found ~ it's respectful to do so.

OER Teaching Resource Page (continued...)

Continue building your your OER Teaching Resource page.

One suggestion for folks in Community Media / Radio - is to check out this media resource from UNESCO - the Multimedia Training Kit (MMTK)

For your OER teaching resource, you could write a radio script (either individually or collaboratively), a briefing note or a learning activity about how one of the MMTK topics would apply to your local situation or interest; what cultural and local modifications would you have to make, for it to work well; and what recommendations you might have for it to be adopted by others, including your peers.
