Learning and Lunching OER Webinar: 'A Crash Course in Creative Commons' - November 6
Please join us for the webinar "A Crash Course in Creative Commons" on Wednesday, November 6, at noon. Bring your lunch to Butler Library 314, where we can watch together, or watch online via Zoom. And bring a friend!
Did you know that over 1 billion works have been licensed with a Creative Commons (CC) license? Though widely adopted, these continually updated, legally enforceable tools continue to remain a mystery to educators. Many instructors are unaware of the permissions afforded to them through the CC licenses, and many are unaware of permissions afforded to users when instructors choose to apply a CC license to their original course materials. By the end of this session, attendees will be able to understand how copyright and the CC licenses work in concert to protect author rights while communicating additional permissions to learners and instructors, identify and interpret each of the six CC licenses, determine how CC-licensed materials may or may not be used without permission in instructional settings, and locate CC-licensed materials for educational purposes.
