New Delhi: In a bid to ensure greater accessibility to students and teachers for necessary study materials, National Instructional Media Institute (NIMI) today announced that all the books developed and printed by the institute for Directorate General of Training (DGT) will be made completely copyright free and put under CC BY license. A CC BYlicense helps an author to give other people the right to share, use, and build upon a work that they (the author) has created, if due credits provided.
National Instructional Media Institute (NIMI) works on the development of Instructional material, question banks for assessment and relevant digital content for the use by teachers and students. The material is designed keeping in mind both short and long term skill development courses carried out by DGT and other educational institutes.
The initiative will help others distribute and build up on their own work, even commercially, as long as it credits NIMI for the original creation. The objective is to help spread the books within larger audience for the benefit of students and teachers. Therelevant content is being made available at www.nimilearningonline.in.
Speaking about the initiative Shri Rajesh Aggarwal, DG- DGT, said, “By eliminating copyright from the course material, NIMI is removing a potential educational barrier to ensure that the willing students and teachers can focus first and foremost on learning. We are committed towards providing support to our students and teaching faculties through this initiative as well as continuing to facilitate better quality vernacular books/videos etc to all who are eager to learn.”
