Creative Commons Launches OER Policy Registry

Creative Commons has announced the formation of an Open Educational Resources (OER) Policy Registry with a call for individuals and institutions to share "OER legislation, OER institutional policies, and supporting OER policy resources" so others may adapt and use them to promote the development and adoption of OER in their national and/or institutional contexts. Submissions are being accepted via an open Google Docs form through May 1. After that, the registry will migrate to a Creative Commons wiki, where interested parties will have to register to participate. In the interim, anyone wanting to get involved can also review the list of OER policies to take advantage of what is already available (45 entries as of today) as well as to propose revisions.
