The latest issue of Jisc Inform – Jisc’s online magazine for educators, researchers, and related staff – is out and is well worth a read for anyone interested in open education. Articles include an introduction to Creative Commons licences and a preview of next week’s JIsc Digital Festival (at which I’m giving a workshop and helpdesk). David Kernohan writes about the legal and ethical issues that MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) need to consider, and recommends Wikimedia Commons as a sourced of freely-licensed material.
The issue also features a short article I’ve written giving Ten ways educators can use Wikipedia (and other Wikimedia projects). Please share the article with anyone who might be interested, and I always welcome constructive feedback.
