For reference materials (materials under a license that is for reference materials only) the Copyright / License information of a material should have a line saying


and of course the platform should not allow modification and inclusion into other courses.

It might be.

But what happens when two LOs have different Copyright and License?

Can two LOs be displayed simultaneously?

If it gets too cumbersome, we might have to think of some kind of visual shortcut, like a paragraph sign with each distinct object that allows a mouse-over for displaying the Copyright and License information or so.

Whether that would be sufficient I don't know. We would need to discuss this in the LEG if you think this is the only/best solution that works for the platform.

When we add the additional metadata tab, this will appear in that information. Don't you think, that is enough, instead of displaying for each LO.

I noticed that currently materials display

Creation Date:

They should also display


(License having a link to the text of that license, ideally, so people can easily inform themselves about the terms)
