* Users can export resources from a public preview
* Users are able to export packages without ODRL extensions
* Contributors now have a multiple file upload option to support upload of more than one item at a time
* Contributors can now opt to receive automatic emails of user comments
* Contributors are now automatically prompted to save metadata when they exit the viewer
* Contributors now have a 'My Objects' space within their work area, allowing them to see resources they have previously uploaded


2. LEGAL WEB PAGE 

A new page providing a range of legal and licensing assistance has now been made available at the Jorum website. See http://www.jorum.ac.uk/support/legal.html 

The page offers:
* Quick links to the Jorum Licences as well as Terms and Conditions

* A 'Rights Guide' offering a best practice approach when attaching IPR information to resources uploaded to Jorum
* Useful links for help with IPR and copyright clearance in e-learning


3. RECENTLY CONTRIBUTED RESOURCES

A number of excellent resources have been uploaded to Jorum recently, here are two examples of major contributions. 

* Legal resources for social care - ten legal resources produced by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) have been uploaded by Southampton University. The resources offer a highly interactive way of engaging with the subject, including an introduction to law, courtroom skills and law for social workers. 

* The "North West Content Exchange" initiative is funded directly by 3 local skills councils and managed by St Helens College. Their remit is to encourage North West colleges to share teaching and learning resources online via Jorum. A range of resources have been contributed to date including mathematics, electronics and plumbing objects. 


4. JORUM EVENTS 2007

A number of Jorum events are currently being planned. Announcements will be made shortly about sessions to be held in London, Manchester and Edinburgh. The focus will be on the Contributor service, with an overview of the User Service also to be given.
