a) Content for a collection such as a course or a textbook.


b) Content for question set such as assessments, surveys etc


c) Content for creating a repository of videos

Step2: Choose the purpose of the project.


a) Choose the sourcing type for this project by selecting one of the options in 'How do you want to get contributions for this project'

b) If you choose contributions from a selected set of contributors, all these contributions will need to be reviewed by both the contributing organization admin and then sourcing organization admin. If this two level review is not needed then select 'Skip two-level review'

c) Nomination end date: This is the date till when nominations to contribute content for the project are allowed.

d) Nomination shortlisting date: This is the date by when the organization admin has to shortlist the nominations.

e) Contribution end date: This is the last date for shortlisted nominations to contribute their content.
