The open education community is faithful to making resources easily reused, redistributed, and retained. However, the open education community stands to improve the ways in which it makes content available for revision or to be remixed. To remain true to the 5Rs put forth in the Open Content Definition, it is not enough to apply an open license to content. There are technical considerations that must be given careful attention to achieve maximum openness and be true to the open philosophy.

In this presentation, Cody Taylor, an Emerging Technologies Librarian at the University of Oklahoma Libraries, will discuss why only publishing open content in consumable formats, PDF for example, is an impediment to the aim of the open movement. Also introduced will be a tool developed at OU Libraries to ensure that open content created there is shared to its maximum potential. In its fourth year, the open educational resources team at OU Libraries has iterated several open publishing approaches. Experiences gleaned from those iterations will be shared as well as the motivations for our current trajectory.
