Creative Commons Explained

Thanks to Joyce Valenza and Melissa Techman for pointing out this handy explanation of the ins & outs of creative commons licensing! Neeru Paharia, Ryan Junell and Matt Haughey did a great job in explaining a topic that is confusing and frustrating to many users who don’t think about these copyright issues daily! Especially useful are the examples they give of when a user might want to use each license. This is a very practical guide. I’m embedding their presentation below so I can remember to use it in professional development w/ faculty & students.

Fair Use: Best Practices for the 21st Century Classroom

Yesterday, the Center for Social Media (American Univeristy) and the National Association for Media Literacy Education, in collaboration with several other organizations, including National Council of Teachers of English released a new Best Practices document concerning fair use for 21st century education. I haven’t had a chance to fully study it yet, but I’m looking forward to reading the document and getting my thoughts together to revisit it all with my faculty.

Below is a video from their site that’s worth sharing.
