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.


Introduction to Creative Commons–A Video

Thanks to Steve Hargadon on the Classroom2.0 ning. He posted a link to this great video that I think does a wonderful job of quickly explaining what Creative Commons is and how it came about.

This would be a good intro for teacher PD. Only problem that I see is that in our district, all social media sites like youtube, flickr, photobucket, etc. are blocked for students. Teachers can now access them though, so for photos, flickrstorm would be a good option to share with them as well.

Here’s the video to share:
