Dear all,

During Open Access week, it’s a pleasure to disseminate a new handbook from
Peter Kaufman of Intelligent Television: *MOOCs and Open Educational
Resources: A Handbook for Educators*, supported by the Hewlett Foundation.


*MOOCs and Open Educational Resources: A Handbook for Educators* is
available for university faculty, educators, and educational producers
involved in producing online courses.  The guide is a step-by-step manual
to how to produce and distribute educational video content under the freest
of licenses, with an emphasis on Creative Commons.

The structure of the Handbook follows the key stages of video course
production, with analysis and support at its core dedicated to methods of
keeping video content free through all the stages of course pre-production,
production, post-production, and distribution.  The Handbook also provides
some notes on the history of online course production and Open Courseware
(OCW) and some thoughts about the future of educational video.

The Handbook, is specifically addressed to the challenges—and rewards—of
sharing educational video designed for MOOCS. As a Handbook for producing
video as open educational resources, it is rich with practical information
for faculty and producers—and it discusses in a broader sense what rights
and obligations all of us as educators may have in sharing the knowledge we
have. And true to our own advice, the Handbook is being published under a
free license, and we hope it see it used and reused—and revised and
updated—over time.
