Draft strategy and roadmap for Creative Commons in the Asia Pacific, 2013
CC people in the Asia Pacific - help us create a strategy and roadmap for next year! This iswhat we have drafted so far, but we need your ideas...
Four key priorities:
Expanding our region; increasing cooperation through translation;promoting openness in government and educational; and creating mentoring relationships in thenetwork.
1. Expanding our region
[Affiliates, this part involves work Soohyun and Jane would like to put into helping colleagues inMongolia and India establish CC project. More details to come]
2. Cooperation through translation
The need for cooperation regionally has been widely recognized and agreed on among theaffiliates in the Asia Pacific, especially since the last regional meeting in 2010 and the globalsummit in the following year. Language barriers have posed challenges to this, so we’veidentified translation as one of the key areas to begin cross regional projects.●Coordinate a targeted course translation project (with P2PU’s School of Open?)●Propose an additional translation project for public domain & cc licensed works;(traditional folk tales and children's books? Materials on the ethos of sharing?)●Offer to work with Europeana (www .europeana
.eu) to assist with translation (Pindar)●Translate the HQ site / provide language options (including for disabilities) (Pindar)
3. Promoting openness in publicly funded research, data and educational resources.
Creative Commons provides the legal infrastructure that underpins movements toward opengovernment and open educational resources (OER). These movements were identified as focusareas by our region at the 2011 Global Summit, and we can continue to prioritize them.●Develop strategies for communicating the benefits of sharing to discrete audiences inopen government and OER (at a government, institution and individual tier level).●Create a snapshot of open Galleries, Libraries Archives and Museums (GLAMS)practice in the region.●Create asia-wide open culture building on Europeana Data Model(http ://pro .europeana .eu /edm -documentation) (Pindar)
