2013-04-19 16:40:45

Need answers about finding and using resources responsibly in the increasingly complex digital environment?  Introducing OPAL.

OPAL is a new resource developed by the Library and Deakin Learning Futures to assist you in:

  • understanding the basics of copyright, licensed resources and open education resources
  • sourcing engaging learning resources to use in cloud and located learning environments
  • managing your rights as a creator of learning and information resources.

The first release of OPAL is now live.  This resource is focused on teaching and learning, and provides guidance in using the rich array of library and open education resources available to refresh and revitalise courses to support LIVE the Future: agenda 2020.

Additional content on using resources in research, publishing and managing your rights as a creator will be added in coming months.

Start exploring OPAL now to discover the great range of resources, tools, links and more! You can contact your Liaison Librarian for more information or to provide feedback to help further develop this resource.
