The Open Education Licensing (OEL) project team surveyed teaching and other staff in the Australian higher education sector. The surveys informed the design of a Toolkit web application, which would provide tailored information to users by presenting relevant questions and guidance in a decision tree format. The decision tree provides pathways to guidance regarding the licensing of teaching resources for Australian higher education. The software was developed iteratively, allowing subject matter experts (SME) to feed in their content whilst the data system and interface were designed and implemented. A user-centred methodology was employed to maximise usability. The Toolkit used open source technologies and is itself openly licensed. This poster communicates the process of design, development and testing of the Toolkit web application. The lessons learned through this process may help inform the design of other innovative systems that aim to emulate the support provided by SME. 2016 Deakin University. All Rights Reserved.
