Open Music Used By OpenWater Project; Awareness Raised, Costs Lowered
Do you know how get clean drinking water in disaster conditions? Well, you will now, thanks to The OpenWater Project, a cool little video that came out of an Instructional Technology class taught by Professor David Wiley at Utah State University.
Wiley's students decided to use about 75 percent CC licensed images and video, then shot the rest of the footage themselves. For their soundtrack, they used music by Justin Bianco, Wicked Allstars, and AntiGuru. Aside from showing a bunch of different methods for getting potable water in disaster conditions, the project also aimed to show how important and useful it is to have open content available to non-profit organzations. Next week David Wiley will be presenting the OpenWater project to international educational leaders including a former deputy secretary of education. He plans to show CC content can help government and disaster relief organizations to bolster awareness and lower production costs.
