OpenSOLR

  • Victor and I will work on PHP site to do this.
  • Will try to offer two views on content - all CC content, and tagcloud of content keywords
  • will also create section for OCW linkages, links to other open content sites
  • need help with design, branding

OPDF and OCW

*

OCW is an insititutional initiative. I really think our line should be:
a) we are willing to fun proposals to help jump start OCW at your institution
b) we are also willing to fund course content to be shared through OCW, BUT - primary point of OPDF is to fund online courses in BC. So we will fund original content development; if you want to share it through OCW, that is fine, but you become responsible for getting in there if that is a separate action.

Making the OPDF work better
