I am delighted to report that the OpenSpires project team have been working hard and colleagues are to be congratulated on producing so much open content at quite short notice. More than 70 Oxford University academics have signed the licence, releasing their material as ‘Open Content’.
So far we have over 100 audio/video recordings most of which are live and available through http://podcasts.ox.ac.uk. The recordings are clearly marked as being released under a Creative Commons licence. These consist of 7 lecture series, including Philosophy, English and Quantum Mechanics. We have 13 sets of other resources (seminars, interviews, conference presentations). We have recordings in 10 subject areas: politics, economics, the credit crunch, environmental change, business, research ethics, medicine, physics, English and philosophy.
