Open educational resources

As part of the university's ongoing commitment to increase privacy, records management and information security awareness, UVic has developed several self-paced online privacy, records management and information security training and resource kits. These resources have been developed by the Chief Privacy Officer, the University Archives’ records management program, and University Systems, in collaboration with Human Resources and Technology Integrated Learning.

Several of these resources are available as Open Educational Resources (OER) with a CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license. You are free to share and adapt these resources as long as you give appropriate credit to the University of Victoria and indicate if changes were made.
