Competendo is an Open Educational Resource. According to UNESCO "Open Educational Resources are teaching, learning or research materials that are in the public domain or released with an intellectual property license that allows for free use, adaptation, and distribution." But for remaining being open to the community, a lot of authors and material providers rely on your fairness. What should be good practice among every citizen is especially relevant for Open Source. Keep the intellectual Commons working!

Respecting Sources and Identifying Them

Authors often depend on being visible as contributors. Help them so that they might continue their engagement as commoners.

Adopting, Not Stealing

Don’t take other content over in a thoughtless way. Otherwise, you might not thoroughly explore the original work and its quality.

Giving Back

Give something back to the community and to authors by publishing, using and sharing other good materials or foregrounding good authors.

Appreciating Quality

Appreciate what others give you for free. The value of OER is not measured by money or authorities. Try to find the specific quality of each work.

Respect Rights

Original ideas and models can be used, but these need to be cited with appropriate information about the sources. Copyrighted material cannot be mutualized without permission.
