Leigh Blackhall has posted an update on his blog on the developments in their Travel and Tourism courses.  They have an innovative IT policy down there!!

“Otago Polytechnic has adopted a Creative Commons Attribution copyright license and has been using the Wikieducator platform with other popular media sharing services to develop and publish Open Educational Resources and Practices. This article outlines some of the steps that the Polytechnic has taken, as well as some of the challenges being faced, and a vision for the future. It should be noted that this article has been written from the perspective of the author, and not necessarily from Otago Polytechnic as a whole”

As an aside: Quite a cool little article open content [Via the TALO list] “A little piece of thought food for you. It’s an article in the Educational Technology Magazine entitled “Towards a Global Learning Commons: ccLearn”, discussing the goals and problems facing open educational resources.  Link on http://learn.creativecommons.org/media/
