50,000 Xpert Attributions

August 19th, 2011 at 08:08

The Xpert attribution service, which provides automatic attribution of openly licenced or public domain images that are available in Flickr and Wikimedia, passed another milestone this week. Over 50,000 images have now been attributed using the tool in 2011. The exact figure as of today is 50,973 for this year.

The tool was designed to help overcome one of the biggest barriers to publication and re-use of Open Educational Resources, namely incorrect attribution or unavailable information about images that are available on the web…….and it seems it is doing just that.
