TLR: Open cyber learningTLR: Open cyber learning

NLU Delhi’s Centre for Communication Governance (CCG) has launched the Teaching and Learning Resources (TLR) - an online database of research-oriented reading references and soon-to-be-uploaded videos on media law and policy.

CCG research director Chinmayi Arun said that TLR was CCG’s initiative to “support new teachers, self-learning students and researchers who are interested in media law and policy” and for the use of “anyone looking for a starting point while reading”.

She told Legally India that over 40 YouTube videos by experts were ready to be uploaded to the TLR soon.

“Lots of wonderful unpaid people worked on it, and are still working on it actually,” she said, adding, “I wanted to build something larger [than my course outline] so that people can curate their own reading/ course outlines without my biases creeping into their classrooms.”

“I'll add any new material I dig up to CCG TLR and I'll probably put up my particular reading list on the CCG blog with a link to CCG TLR. If I can get other teachers to do the same, perhaps we could add another part with 'playlists' of the different ways in which different people have used the resource.

“Am also hoping it triggers a general movement towards law teachers sharing their material in an organised way.”

Reading materials on 18 media law topics are currently referenced on the TLR including “the media landscape, media and democracy”, “contempt of court”, “defamation (citizens, society and the media)”, court reporting, sedition, privacy, whistleblowers and the internet. The TLR is also supported by the British Council.

Arun said that the content would most likely be released under a limited creative commons licence soon, to permit use with attribution under the same licence.
