Hello! I'm trying to write a piece on Open Content and Open Educational Resources in India and am asking for your help.
Open Content is defined as: Reuse - the right to reuse the content in its unaltered / verbatim form (e.g., make a backup copy of the content) Revise - the right to adapt, adjust, modify, or alter the content itself (e.g., translate the content into another language) Remix - the right to combine the original or revised content with other content to create something new (e.g., incorporate the content into a mashup) Redistribute - the right to share copies of the original content, your revisions, or your remixes with others (e.g., give a copy of the content to a friend) [from: http://opencontent.org/definition/] Wikipedia and sister projects apart, do you know of content, both educational and otherwise, in India that would fit this definition? Assuming a lower threshold as well, that it's just available for free and no necessarily the other elements, are there resources that come to mind? I can think of the NCERT textbooks [http://www.ncert.nic.in/ncerts/textbook/textbook.htm], NPTEL [http://nptel.iitm.ac.in/], VASAT [http://vasat.icrisat.org/], FlexiLearn [http://www.ignouflexilearn.ac.in/flexilearn/] and Pratham Books, if I say so myself, [http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Case_Studies/Pratham_Books]. What else comes to mind? Examples and links would be very helpful. Thank you.
