Policy Title: US: SREB: An Expectation of Sharing. Guidelines for Effective Policies to Respect, Protect and Increase the Use of Digital Educational Resources - Go to the policy
Author(s): Southern Regional Education Board, Working Group on Digital Content Rights
To realize the educational impact from the substantial investments SREB states have made (and will continue to make) in digital content, SREB recommends that electronic educational resources created with public funding be licensed to provide as high a level of potential for sharing as possible, both within and outside the state. These guidelines can help state-level administrators and policy-makers (as funders of digital educational resource development) to establish policies, practices, statutes and regulations, if needed, that increase the sharing of and maximize returns on their state’s investment in digital education resources.
