Review existing OERs for remix
QUERY: Might need to distinguish whether we are focussing on OER (resources) or 'Open Courseware', or maybe we start big picture then roll down to more specific resources to fill in gaps . . .
WikiSource has a heap of psychology relevant sources that turn up in a psychology search including original works by Jung and Freud that are now in the public domain, but beware that some of them are 'works in progress'.
There seem to be lots of Psychology courses already available which are tagged as OER, although the copyright licensing does not always allow modification.
http://www.saylor.org/courses/psych101/ is the one we have identified to start from.
There are lots of further examples listed in the Open Courseware Consortium. I have downloaded materials from 4 that were readily accessible in modifiable forms, AND had clear licensing statements:
- Washington State Board for Community & Technical Colleges
- African Virtual University
- Massachsetts Institute of Technology
- Open University UK
(: Check the licenses carefully -- if we want to embed and remix materials, we can only use CC-BY or CC-BY-SA. Otherwise we will need to point to the externally hosted sites. --Mackiwg 06:03, 12 February 2013 (UTC))
They are available for us to preview / review and 'mashup' in the Open Polytechnic Moodle site before we construct more in Wikieducator.
Examples of Open Textbooks on psychology sourced from various repositories / clearinghouses. Note that I have included only real 'books': standard publicly available websites which turn up in searches have been excluded.
Dewey, R. Psychology:An Introduction (book appears dated and includes advertising).
From Flatworld Knowledge see:
It's also useful to understand their free / buy / adapt publishing model.
Also check out Wikibooks 'Psychology'
1. Youtube now makes it possible for contributors to upload CC-BY videos, however, the only way to search on the licensing criteria seems to be through the edit/mashup area (for which you need to be logged in with your own channel).
Components of the following might be usable for an open psychology course:
- Research in psychology http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTlaJ8aFgyo (14:22): ppt-like presentation on 3 types of research. The third in a set of 3 on research

2. TED Talks can be downloaded and reused so long as they are not adapted (CC-BY-NC-SA see licensing page at http://www.ted.com/pages/talk_usage_policy). The ones I looked at seem to include the ability to download with subtitles in various languages. Some relevant examples might include:
