Open Spires has two purposes: Firstly, to increase the amount of educational audio and video content released from Oxford University as Open Content Resources (OER). Secondly, to enable the University to investigate and disseminate the institutional implications of making some of this material available as 'Open Content'. The project is making a range of audio and video podcasting material available (talks, research seminars etc) through the web and other channels. The material will be open for reuse and redistribution by third parties globally, provided that it is used in a non-commercial way and is attributed to its creator.
