4.3 Uploading resources: summary

When choosing a resource to upload you must ensure that it can be legally shared with any permissions obtained and licenses checked, ensure that it is accessible, i.e. that it will not cause problems for people reading it, that it is not too large and that it is in a format that is readily available to others.

These are, of course, not the only considerations when thinking about a possible resource to share. You will also want to consider how suitable it is for others, i.e. can it be applied to other contexts, and that it does not contain any personal or context-specific information or data that may be inappropriate or irrelevant to other teachers’ use.
