Suggest wording change

This page is a derivative of the page in the WikiEducator tutorials: Wikieducator tutorial/What is free content/Freedom as concept. Although I meant to start a thread concerning suggested wording changes on this talk page, I made the thread on the talk page for the wikied tutorial page, inadvertently. As the suggestions apply to both pages, please see suggested wording changes on the freedom as concept talk page.

Thanks, Alison

I revised the page to reflect the discussion/resolution at Talk:Wikieducator_tutorial/What_is_free_content/Freedom_as_concept#lqt_thread_19235.

I ended up leaving out a fair bit, as the 2nd sentence seemed to follow an argument no longer present in the first sentences. Feel free to improve further.

Suggest revised wording for activity

Currently the activity is worded:

Consider, for example, an OER teaching resource which is stored as a pdf document for download or stored in a closed or proprietary file format.
  • Using the four freedoms described above, would this teaching resource meet the requirements of the essential freedoms specified above?

I suggest rewording to move the focus to the two distinct file formats, and to reduce redundancy:

Adapt the four freedoms described above for use with OER teaching resources. Would an OER teaching resource meet the requirements of all four freedoms if it is:
  • stored as a pdf document for download?
  • stored in a closed or proprietary file format, such as XXX?

I'm also thinking that the paragraph following the activity could be revised to fit within this structure, so learners can clearly see a suggested answer.

Thoughts?
