Excellent blueprint -- thoughts and reflections

Jump to: navigation, search

Hi Liz,

  • One option worth exploring for the release of the purpose written textbook is to consider a bounty award submission for the Saylor Open Textbook Challenge. This could be very useful for addressing any re-writes which may be necessary to address any third-party copyright clearances in the existing text. If the text is published, for example, by a University press -- there is no problem in selling a bound version under an open license -- Just as long as there is a digital version for free under an open content license. There is some evidence that sales of open text books using this model do not necessarily decrease.
  • Thanks for the clarification that the assessment strategies in the blueprint are for the OER course -- I can see that this will synchronise well with Unisa's formal assessment model.

Thanks Wayne

We are still in negotiation, and I will keep you posted on the progress.

Kind Regards
