dScribe is fundamentally about the opportunity to collaborate with others to create open content. Perhaps you’re a group of students creating a project and want to ensure that others can take your work and adapt it. Or, maybe you’re a faculty member looking for students and staff to work with you as you strive to open your research and teaching material to a broader audience. Whether you’re a team of two or a group of eight, the first step in the dScribe process is to connect with others interested in working together.
As you confirm who you will work with and begin to formulate thoughts around how you want to collaborate, you have a couple of approaches you can take:
You can use the documentation available in the dScribe wiki (the steps that follow) and the Open.Michigan website to “do-it-together.” You receive little guidance from the Open.Michigan OER team and simply have fun exploring the process of creating open content.
You can contact members of the Open Michigan team to share your interest in doing the dScribe process. We can assign someone from the Open.Michigan team to work with you throughout the course of the project who will assist with questions you may have, help you navigate OERca, and publish your resources on the Open.Michigan site.
