OER is based on open licensing. What happens when educators don't understand the licensing system? What is the impact of changes to copyright on OER?


There is a strong likelihood that by the time of the conference amendments to Canada's Copyright Act will have been made that include education under fair dealing.  In my recent experience talking about copyright with educators and educational technologists in British Columbia I am struck by how little understood licensing systems are by the very people who use them.  I'd like to explore this subject as part of the science fair given the experience of so many within the Open Education community.
