There are three stages to creating an educational resource in Open Author: Write, Describe, and Submit.
Step 3: Publish your resource
Once you have written and described your resource, you will select a copyright license. Open Author will help you select the appropriate Copyright license based on your response to the three questions below.
- Allow Modifications? Choosing Yes lets others modify your work such as translating it, adapting it for a different age group, or adding additional content. Your original resource is not affected.
- Allow Commercial Uses? Select Yes or No to indicate whether you want to allow your resource to be used commercially.
- Jurisdiction? Use the option, International, for the most recent license that is also jurisdiction-neutral and globally effective.
Once you have selected a license, review the Open Space Rubrics and select whether you believe your OER object meets the minimum requirements for approval.
Finally, Click the Publish button. Your resource will go into a "Pending" state while it is reviewed by an Open Space curation specialist. Once approved and published your resource is available and can be discovered and shared.
