Computing & Library Services (CLS), University Repository, University of Huddersfield

The University Repository was launched in May 2007 to provide a digital collection of the research output of the University. It strongly encourages all University researchers to deposit their research on open access. All citation data is made available on open access and where possible the ‘full text’ of this content is also accessible. Material in the repository will conform to the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting and is indexed by Google (Scholar) and Summon, the Library's web scale discovery service. Data from the Repository also feeds the research output pages on the Research office’s academic staff profiles. Any University of Huddersfield member of staff, researcher or postgraduate research student, can deposit material. ('Researcher' may include visiting fellows/professors, who would also be eligible to deposit material).

Content includes:

  • Papers published in peer-reviewed journals; in edited journals; in edited conference proceedings; in edited working papers series and in published monographs and book chapters
  • Other textual material supporting non-textual research outputs e.g. exhibition catalogues
  • Non textual research outputs e.g. artworks; recorded music, photographs, AV recordings and electronic databases
  • Post graduate theses registered with the research office, unless a sponsoring body has withheld permission for commercial reasons or there are issues of confidentiality
Open Education Resources - The University of Edinburgh

Open Education Resources (OERs) are digital resources used in the context of teaching and learning that have been released by the copyright holder under an open licence permitting their use and re-purposing by others.

We believe that open educational resources play an important role in supporting our vision, purpose and values; to discover knowledge and make the world a better place, and to ensure our teaching and research is diverse, inclusive, accessible to all and relevant to society.  In line with the UNESCO Recommendation on Open Educational Resources we also believe that OER can make a critical contribution to achieving the aims of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which the University and Students Association are committed to through the SDG Accord.

Copyright the Card Game Online

Introduction to copyright law and the relationship between licences and copyright exceptions. The four ‘suits’ in the game are:
- Copyright works
 - Usages, or what the law calls the ‘restricted acts’ that are the exclusive right of the copyright holder. How does what you want to do with a work map onto the usages as defined in the law?
 - Licenses – how do licences work? What licences are available and how might they be used to enable you to go beyond what the law might allow
 - Exceptions – what copyright exceptions exist in the UK and how can you make better use of them.

Researchers, Impact & Publications (R.I.P.)

Increasing researcher awareness of the importance of the links between good Research Data Management, published articles, funder requirements and the research lifecycle is a large part of a Research Support services’ role. The University of Bristol’s Research Data Service has adapted the cult game ‘Cards Against Humanity’ for a research environment.

Whilst the game demonstrated here is specific to Research Data Management and its relationship to decisions made during the research lifecycle, the mechanism allows for adaptations across multiple fields: teams in contracts, ethics, research development and data protection can also benefit by developing their own questions and using this game as strategy to reach their audience.

In addition to its use as a tool for engaging with researchers, Cards Against Humanity has openness at its core. The originators state it is ‘meant to be remixed’, and have issued Cards against Humanity with a CC-BY-NC-SA licence.

Scratch: Programming for Teachers

In this course you will learn the basics of programming and how to teach it yourself as a primary or secondary school teacher.

This MOOC teaches programming in Scratch through fun videos which explain programming in an inspiring and clear way. These videos are accompanied by assignments which let kids practice programming and create programs they will like to use themselves!

Every week you build a different Scratch project yourself: a flappy bird game, a virtual pet or a Mondriaan like artwork. Also weekly, new programming blocks are taught and together we’re working on ways to improve your written code. In addition, you will learn how you can integrate the same programming lessons in your class for both primary and secondary education.
