Why toolkits?

We can spread the word quickly now.

Let's build some things together.

What are the toolkits?

  • Brief, digestable, relevant information packs
  • Targeting areas of opportunity for open
  • On the web, downloadable, open file formats
  • #CCBY
  • Made by Communities

Explain how CC Helps us share

High Level

Attractive, digestible, relatable

Great content exists

(if you can find it)

A Toolkit

Images  |  Video  |  Text  |  Audio

Find the best content that speaks to the questions we wish to answer.  Gather a list, discuss, raise the most useful content to the top.  That's what we're doing in this workshop.
Put the content in the template and share

The Community

Expertise in many domains, across a range of contexts

  • Survey of affiliate groups > priority areas

education  |  science  |  government  |  creative industries

    Using Open Content

    • Use existing content, practice in curation and remixing
    • Create new content where needed, round out the basics

    And sprint to build it.


    Regional groups and distributed experts.

    These kits are for top-level domains.
    (and barriers we all face)

    If we can't find a minimum number of commonalities or themes, we've got problems.
