Xpert Media Search and Attribution service
One of the main barriers to publishing and using open resources is copyright and particularly the use of third party images where the copyright status is uncertain. To help with overcoming this problem the Open Nottingham team created the Xpert Media Search and Attribution service, which is a ground-breaking website helping users to find creative commons or public domain media and automatically incorporate licence information into the resource. Routinely embedding open licences simplifies OER development, removes barriers to repurposing and publishing OER, and substantially increases the usability and accessibility of course materials. For the first time, broad audiences of OER providers can now easily search, repurpose and automatically attribute images from some of the world’s most popular sites.
