I came across this page via lqt and noticed that it was not categorised? Appropriate Categories:
OER, Policy, etc
In addition to:
- Sector (School, higher education, vocational training) "
Consider adding cultural institutions like libraries, archives and museums. These institutions have a mandate for education and have critical resources for the OER movement
My opinion to "Do we need a separate policy briefs for different policy makers (eg Government, education institutions)?" is absolutely. There can certainly be core aspects to all policy briefs around principles of OER, but the differences in the stakeholder and influencers in each sector will require policy recommendations that are specific to each sectors primary concerns and resources.

I'm working on a policy for NZ Schools. I also need to create brochures - one for Boards of Trustees/Governors and one for teachers. I'm uncertain as to the best way to collaborate on these publications. Shall we ignore the graphics and concentrate on text include graphics? The final brochure could be uploaded for others to use.
If you are looking for images you may want to check out the mediawiki commons website (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page) that has close to 5 million freely usable media files. To incorportate them into your brochures all you need to do is use the image syntax as if the image resided on WikiEducator. For example [[Image:Book3.svg|50px|right]] results in:
which is a scalable vector graphic image uploaded directly from the commons.
Hope this helps.
Although not OER specifically, there may be something to learn from the Open Access movement:
