Web directories. Open educational resources (OERs) The creation of open educational resources (OER) requires consideration of a number of legal issues. Paramount amongst these is consideration of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), and in particular, copyright. Making materials ‘open’ is to make them available to the public for free in perpetuity (at least to some extent – certain restrictions are still possible).

Whilst this is not an issue where the person releasing the materials is the copyright owner, it is a much more difficult issue where third party materials are included. Other legal issues which may need to be considered include data protection law, liability for inaccuracy or illegal content, and accessibility law. To assess how ready your organisation is to adopt open licensing policies, there is a wizard to help you.

For the purposes of this guidance, ‘open’ will be taken to mean release under a Creative Commons (CC) licence.
