Cataloging open (not only educational) resources has been done for years by many open communities but the most popular posts with curated overviews of open resources, public domain content, infographics and guides were done by users and bloggers (http://openculture.com/, http://otwartezasoby.pl/). At the same time it is a success and it points to a question that maybe we don’t have catalogues and curated top-lists that address exact needs of educational users. People like teachers, librarians or creative people like graphic designers when asked about what would help them use CC and PD resources they often suggest building places where they can easily find best quality open content but at the same time they do not use specific sites of museums and other cultural institutions or even are confused by thier polcies.
Whose and what needs catalogues of open resources match and how we can build better catalogues with that knowledge?
In my presentation I want to to focus on how development of such a catalogues can
help specific user user groups use open licensed resources in their context
help make a connection between those who deliver and those who use open cultural&heritage content
Anyone promoting, teaching, blogging about CC licensed and PD content is invited. Goal of yhis presenation is to help successfully develop and unwind potential of open cultural heritage for education.
