eLearning@ed Board Game Jam (Make your own OER using OERs)

22nd November 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Paper shapes and dice

Design your own game as an Open Educational Resource (OER)!

Take part in this hands-on workshop and we’ll guide you through all the steps so that you can create your own game using openly licensed images, and how to add variety and fun by employing different game mechanics.

OERs are digitised teaching and learning resources that reside in the public domain or have been released by the copyright owner under an intellectual property licence (e.g. Creative Commons) that permits their use or re-purposing (re-use, revision, remixing, redistribution) by others.

The workshop will cover:

  • the differences between copyright and licensing,
  • how to identify licensed material that is free for re-use,
  • how to correctly attribute the materials you use,
  • how to licence your own work,
  • how to create your very own board game!

We’ll provide everything you need to get you up and running, including inspiring images from our Library Special Collections.

All we need from you are your enthusiasm and your ideas!
