Ie. Becta's home access project is happening here in the northwest - I
*think* www.greeh.co.uk is involved in it, but don't quote me there.

Is the proposed "National Digital Resource Bank" - being built by a north
west based company going to be a sham or really useful? According to a
leaflet I managed to dig out it said it was going to be Creative Commons
licenced but fail to say which licence, which makes that assertion almost


license clarity is really crucial

it's probably worthwhile asking about license compatibility

"The National Digital Resource Bank is set to become the largest
project in UK Education. Using a licence free product developed in
Spain. ndrb will provide Local Authorities with the largest collection
of open content available that is compatible with all commonly used
Learning Platforms."


"licence free product" ...?

is this free software? public domain? freeware? royalty free?

haha. My thoughts exactly!
I'll chase this up and see what what's going on! :)

Here's another
"is it a quango/is it a useful program" game:

Currently attempting to grasp what precisely it has to do with free software to justify two talks at this event: http://opensourceschools.org.uk/innovationseminar but no doubt I'll find out!
