Where can I host my resource?
The OpenContent directory is designed as a place to describe and showcase teaching and learning content already hosted elsewhere on the web. Resources can be stored on departmental servers, on Vula, or on media-specific sharing sites such as Slideshare (for ppt presentations), YouTube (video), or Flickr (image collections).
Files hosted on Vula can be made publicly available. You can do this by navigating to the resource you want to share, clicking on the ‘Actions’ button to the right of the resource name, and then clicking ‘Edit Details’. As long as you are the site owner or the person who uploaded the file, you will be able to see the option ‘Availability and Access’. Click on ‘This file is publicly viewable’ to make the file accessible to anyone on the internet. At the bottom of the page is the ‘Web Address (URL)’ which you can use to point people to the file. This is the URL you will enter into the directory.
If you are having trouble finding a place to store your resources but want to share, please get in touch with the OpenContent team via the ‘Feedback’ link at the top of this page. We can help!
