OER as Assessment Stuart Nicol
A practicalOER activity:Create a digitalartefactby reusing existing openly licensed resources, and then to consider making theartefactan OER by sharing it under an open licence of your choosing.
This is something we cover in our OER workshops so some of you may already be familiarwiththe activity, and so be able to go further with exploring where to find and then share your resources.
Aim: Create an infographic, or short video presentation from open resources
Focusing on:Where to source openly licensed resourcesHow to attribute Creative Commons licensed materialsSignpost where and how to share and licence your work
Step 1: What are the three most important things that make an effective online learning environment?
By AIGA [Public domain], via Wikimedia
Write down three short phrases or words that describe the things you have chosen.
Note: the purpose is to find things we can illustrate visually.
Step 2: Search for 3 suitable imagesthat visually support your message
What is a suitable image? How would you identify an image that is/not suitable?
We want you to look for images that have been licensed for re-use.
A suitable image is an image that has been licensed for re-use. Also check that it is licensed for the ways in which you want to use it, for example if you want to modify, adapt or alter the image then you will need an image that doesnt have the Non-Derivative (ND) restriction.
Search for imagesCC Search provides a useful meta-search over a number of media platforms:
http://search.creativecommons.org is a useful tool that allows you to select the type of licensed material you are looking for and applies this to a search on one of the listed platforms.
Each of those platforms has a search function that limits results to items on particular licences. You can set this on the platforms themselves by using the advanced search settings.
By clicking on : I want something that I can use for commercial purposes- Results will include material that has been licensed and doesnt impose the NC or Non-Commercial restriction.
By clicking on: I want something that I can modify, adapt, or build uponResults will include material that has been licensed and doesnt impose the ND or Non-Derivative restriction.
Any resources that have been licensed with a Non-derivative restriction may be used but only in their complete and un-altered form.
Create an infographic from the template supplied, or a short presentation in Media Hopper.
Remember to provide image attribution.
Think about where on your resource you will be able to provide the attribution, and what information you will need in order to provide a good attribution.
Thinking about placement of attribution is important and will vary depending on how and in what format you are using the resource. As you can see in the slides provided today weve chosen to provide image attribution directly underneath the images that have been used, we could also just as well have placed these on an additional slide at the end of the presentation.
But where might you attribute a sound file or song used in a podcast, or a video?
Its a good idea to keep track of attribution information as you go (and keep it if possible).
Think of this as an asset register.
Keep track of resources resources you use

We recommend keeping track of attribution information on your resources as you go (and to keep it if possible). Think of this as an asset register, a directory of useful resources that you may want to come back to or re-use in other projects.11
Make sure you get the attribution rightThe Creative Commons Wiki provides detailed information on how to correctly attribute resources in a number of contexts: https://wiki.creativecommons.org/Best_practices_for_attribution

Incorrect: Photo: Creative Commons
In addition to the Author, Title, Source, and licence, what other information could be useful to know about a resource before you use it?
Date when it was created, depending on the material it may be no longer relevant, or indicative of a certain time period.
Additional restrictions or requests by the copyright holder we came across an image on Wikimedia commons recently where the creator had placed an attribution only licence on their image but requested a message if the image was re-used as they were curious as to who would use it and how.
There are correct and incorrect ways to attribute resources you have used, general practice is to provide a URL link back to the source of the resource, along with the title, author, and licence details.
Where should I share my OER?There are several options for sharing your OER depending on subject area and target audience. Media Hopper is good choice for audio or video.
Many of these platforms provide easy settings for applying Creative Commons licences to your work.
More information on how to do this on various platforms has been provided on Open.Ed at http://open.ed.ac.uk/how-to-guides/how-to-apply-a-cc-license-on-a-publishing-platform-youtubeflickrwordpress/13
OER for assessment: a student perspectiveMSc DE (Digital Futures for Learning): the course is co-created by participantsAssessment built around developing an Open Educational Resource (OER)Purpose of the assignment: to facilitate learning for the whole groupRequires a pedagogical approach which is both carefully structured and very free in terms of content
This was an assessment task that Stuart Nicol complete as a student on the MSc DE.It involved creating an OER using licensed materials and then sharing this in an appropriate environment, and was also part of participating to facilitate learning for the whole group.14
Components of assessment30% Position paper (basis of content for OER)40% OER (30% peer-assessed & tutor moderated / 10% self-assessed)30% Analysis paper
The assessment involved creating the resource, but also writing up a position and then an analysis paper on the experience.15
Normally an assessment is only seen by the student and the assessor. By creating an OER as part of an assessment you know that your effort, your work, will be useful in an ongoing practice beyond just the assessment itself.16
