Effective open licensing policy and practice for Australian universities

This project addresses a critical need identified in previous OLT projects; to review the copyright and legal issues effecting OEP. It will survey current OEP in Australian universities and use the data collected to develop an Open Education Licensing Toolkit. The Toolkit will be a practical online resource for university teaching and learning and business planning professionals. Project outputs, including the Toolkit, will be disseminated through a national series of workshops/forums, academic publications and conference presentations. The project aims to improve Australia's competitive strength in the international market for open education services.
