3. Open education and MOOCs

Our department has been involved in making a MOOC. Can the University of Groningen use the materials for its own educational purposes?

With the arrival of open education and MOOCs, there is a growing need for guidance about who has the final about teaching materials on internet. Reaching clear agreements is essential for this. The University of Groningen has agreed to offer open courses on the British platform FutureLearn. Based on that agreement, the University can use these materials for its own education. The platform gets a temporary, non-exclusive license to show University of Groningen materials. The university receives the data for analysis and a percentage of the revenue of sold certificates. The university has committed itself to ensure that participating lecturers sign an image waiver, thereby abstaining the right to control the use of their image. The university also makes sure that the materials used in the course does not infringe any copyright.
