Choose a License

Choose a License | technologies | Scoop.it

More and more learning providers, and/or practitioners, are sharing their work with a wider audience; Creative Commons licensing is a good way to explicitly state the terms by which other people can use and re-use their creative written, audio, and visual works.

 

However, selecting the license that is right for them can be confusing.

 

The Creative Commons organization has a new tool to help people choose the best license for their situation.

 

To select the right license for your work just answer a few questions and a license will be recommended to you.

 

NOTE: Even if practitioners and their learners are not going to use Creative Commons licensing, the Creative Commons license chooser could be helpful in understanding what the various Creative Commons licenses mean.

Behold | Search High Quality Flickr Images

Behold | Search High Quality Flickr Images | technologies | Scoop.it

A visual image search engine for high quality creative commons images.

When learners create multimedia projects as part of their coursework, Learning Providers require them to use either Creative Commons or Public Domain images if they don't create their own images. This reinforces the point that they cannot just grab and re-use images without regard for Copyright. Behold could help learners (and their practitioners) find quality images that meet the Creative Commons requirement.

YouTube and Creative Commons: raising the bar on user creativity

YouTube and Creative Commons: raising the bar on user creativity | technologies | Scoop.it
Allowing broad noncommercial use of otherwise protected material significantly expands the pool of resources faculty and learners can use in teaching and learning. Knowing quickly and easily whether a piece of content can be distributed, modified, or remixed fits well with the teaching style of many practitioners—they want to be able to search for up-to-the-minute artifacts and include them in lectures and learning materials, without having to worry about obtaining permission.

On June 2nd 2011, YouTube announced that they are now offering video creators the option to label their works with Creative Commons licenses. If educators choose to use Creative Commons licensing, people will be able to use parts of their videos and create remixes according to the Creative Commons rules. This means that practitioners and/or learners who want to create videos now have more options than before.
