MINUTES
- Parvathi Chandrasekar (OHSL), who works together with Anil, quickly introduced herself.
 CONTENTS/LINKAGES (All)

• Feed-back on Gerry’s ideas as to what can be done with the general info sites on cancer :
- Create links with other websites via “tiles” or permanently connected frames, which are useful to see the latest materials from another website (just as an i-Google personalized home page) although it normally encompasses only a fraction of a webpage.
- Create RSS Feeds.
- Need to think about what kind of information different user groups are looking for.
- Gerry will put a list of general info sites in the « Finding more OER » section of the OERC website
• INCTR’s role :

- Given INCTR’s various programs, INCTR could act as an “integrator”, and assist in classifying information on the Merlot site as related to education, treatment, etc…

- As an international network, INCTR could provide material in multiple languages.

- INCTR is in the process of formalizing an “INCTR Faculty” comprised of various groups of experts (pathologists, pediatric oncologists, etc…) willing to volunteer their time to perform various tasks according to their areas of expertise & availability (e.g. : providing content for OERC, giving distant consultations using the I-Path application, etc…). Need to discuss further about how to identify new INCTR Faculty members and communicate with them using OERC (e.g. : via the Merlot membership directory, Merlot peer review/case management tools, etc…)

- For a general overview of INCTR IT Assets, please see the presentation sent by Julie and send us your feedback/ideas on integrating existing INCTR sites such as I-Path with OERC (further development of this kind might well lead itself to writing grant applications e.g. jointly with Gerry)

- OERC Executive Committee members are also invited to register on I-Path to have a better idea of how it works (see email sent by Julie). All comments on how to maximize use and develop further possibly closely integrated with OERC are welcome.

• Broad-band Access in developing countries :

- Need to give more thought to the possibility of using mobile phones as connection tools to access OERC

- Gerry will put information on using Merlot Mobiles on the OERC website(i.e: accessing OERC via a Blackberry)
