The National Copyright Unit (NCU), with help from the Australian Government Open Access and Licensing Framework (AusGOAL), has produced an Open Educational Resources (OER) Toolkit for Teachers, Curriculum and eLearning Developers.  The Toolkit can be found on the Smartcopying website here:  http://www.smartcopying.edu.au/open-education/open-education-resources/open-educational-resources-(oer)-a-toolkit-for-teachers-curriculum-and-elearning-developers.

NCU and AusGOAL  have recently joined QUT Law Faculty as Creative Commons Australia Co- Affiliates

The Toolkit has been developed to support teachers and schools as well as curriculum writers and e-learning areas within Departments of Education, Catholic Education Commissions and Associations of Independent Schools, to understand and make use of OER to create curriculum resources.  The Toolkit specifically looks at how to find and use OER and how to licence these resources for incorporation into new learning resources.

The Toolkit has been built on the work of others, including:

It is an excellent example of re-use and remixing and the importance of  educational resources being licensed for such uses.

We will get  pdf and doc version up on our website as soon we can.
