Dear all 


The National Copyright Unit has revamped the Open Education Resource (OER) and Creative Commons section of www.smartcopying.edu.au and is launching in Open Education Week.

The National Copyright Unit has recently become a co-affiliate of Creative Commons Australia and is the new education lead for Creative Commons Australia.

The Smartcopying OER section <http://www.smartcopying.edu.au/open-education>  now provides an introduction on OER and why it is good for Australian schools, students and parents as well as providing information on where to find OER toolkits and guides, good OER resources, presentations made by the NCU on OER, videos on OER and open courses offered by P2PU on OER.  

The Smartcopying CC section <http://www.smartcopying.edu.au/open-education/creative-commons>  has been updated with recommended Creative Commons notices for website and publications for Departments of Education and the non-government school sector plus updated database of websites that educators can use to find CC licensed materials. 

The NCU is also working closely with Education Services Australia (ESA) to support its activities during Open Education Week running 9-13 March 2015. This event is being promoted in partnership with ESA via the Scootle Community <https://community.scootle.edu.au/>  a national professional learning network comprising over 18,000 educators. Planned events for Open Education Week include a Twitter hour discussion on OER and daily feeds showcasing OER resources to highlight the benefits to Australian educators!

So please spread to your networks and tell them to log on to Scootle Community <https://community.scootle.edu.au/>  next week if they are interested in learning more about OER and Creative Commons and joining an OER community.
