Strategies for ensuring re-usable content

The JISC presenation at Educa Online focussed on strategies that funders can take to ensure material digitised in their digitisation programmes is available for re-use by a variety of different users (eg teachers, lecturers, postgrards, undergrads, interested members of public)

For JISC these five strategies are

  • Ensure licensed usage for educational sector so that users can be confident IPR is cleared
  • Use of open standards so that content does not become locked into particular technologies
  • Establish links between content and the national curriculum so that educators can easily export content into their classes
  • Develop strategic links with other relevant partners so that content gets exposed to particular user communities
  • Support assisted take up programmes to provide context to content that can otherwise be overwhelming
