Hi Pat, et al,


I am a relative newbie to the world of OERs, and I am learning more about
the benefits and challenges of Open Education every day. I am working on a
project that covers the North and Middle of Wales, and will showcase OERs
(and possibly ERs) that are produced by Higher Education in this part of


Pat – can you offer links to the attribution add-ons you have mentioned
please? Or further details?


Many thanks,





Geoff Constable
