2017 Summit Presentations
One of the important goals of the Minnesota eLearning Summit is to promote the widespread sharing of ideas on teaching, learning, and technology. To accomplish this, we are asking that presenters post their materials on the Summit content repository. You will also have the option of assigning one of the three commonly used Creative Commons licenses to allow for further dissemination.
Instructions for Uploading Your Presentation Into the Repository
Including your materials in the eLearning Summit repository provides ongoing open access to your presentation, promoting greater impact of your ideas for a broader audience.
Posting your materials is easy (less than 10 minutes):
- Go to: http://pubs.lib.umn.edu/minnesota-elearning-summit. Click on “Submit Presentation” on left side bar.
- Create a new account by clicking “Sign Up” and filling out the account information. You will receive an email message with a link to activate your account. (Or use the account information that you may have set up during last year's Summit.)
- Click on the link in the email and follow the instructions on the screen.
Additional information about your session including description, audience focus, schedule, biography will be automatically populated when posted on the site.
If you wish to share your presentation more broadly, we have also provided an easy way for you to select one of three “Creative Commons” licenses (that facilitate sharing and reuse of your content) on the submission form:
- Creative Commons Attribution 4.0—This license lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation. This is the most accommodating of licenses offered. Recommended for maximum dissemination and use of licensed materials.
- Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial 4.0—This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work noncommercially, and although their new works must also acknowledge you and be noncommercial, they don’t have to license their derivative works on the same terms.
- Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication 1.0—CC 1.0 enables scientists, educators, artists and other creators and owners of copyright- or database-protected content to waive those interests in their works and thereby place them as completely as possible in the public domain, so that others may freely build upon, enhance, and reuse the works for any purposes without restriction under copyright or database law.
Complete information on these licenses is available from the Creative Commons website.
