Before You Start Checklist

IMPORTANT: Complete the following checklist tasks in advance to ensure your learning resource can be contributed to SOL*R correctly and efficiently.

Done Before Contributing a Learning Resource to SOL*R
Ensure you have included a Creative Commons license tag in your content. This tag denotes the license under which the content is available and lets users know the terms of use. See Generate a License for more information.
Ensure you have cleared third party copyright. See Generate a License for more information.
Get a myBCcampus account with membership in the SOL*R group. You cannot contribute a learning resource to SOL*R using SOL*R guest access.
Determine which type of resource you are contributing:

  • Full Courses (i.e., complete courses authored inside or outside of a course management system, or entire programs)
  • Learning Objects (i.e., course modules, learning activities, or other individual resources)
  • Tools and Technologies (i.e., software tools, virtual labs, or other resources that are executable technologies instead of content).
Decide on the upload format for the learning resource, and prepare the resource in that format. For guidance, see Determine the Appropriate Format for Uploading to SOL*R in the general best practices area of the wiki.
For OPDF-funded learning resources, make note of your OPDF tracking code (i.e., the code used in past correspondence with BCcampus regarding your project). The OPDF tracking code facilitates project tracking. It also adds OPDF-related details to the resource in SOL*R so that you don’t have to enter the information manually.
For OPDF-funded learning resources that are funded as a part of a larger OPDF-funded online program, make note of the program name.
Obtain details that can be used to classify the learning resource (e.g., discipline, subject area, keywords that can be used for searching, year the resource is appropriate for, typical time to complete, language, and file format).
Gather the names and e-mail addresses of the creators of the learning resource content.
Decide who else should be able to modify a resource? descriptive information or contribute a new version of the resource to SOL*R.

You are now ready to contribute your online learning resource to SOL*R.
