Mayya RevzinaI have taken the Creative Common Certificate for Educators and have enjoyed the course greatly. In my opinion, the course was very well organized, well structured, and very informative. It was great to receive feedback on assignments from the CC Certificate team. It was also helpful to have the opportunity to provide comments on each assignment and to discuss course-related matters on Slack.–Mayya Revzina, Publishing Rights Manager/Copyright Officer, The World Bank (DC, USA)

Lokesh Rajendran The course content is well organized. The topics in this course almost cover the entire ecosystem of Openness. Excellent references and case studies.

Colleen Cressman The CC Certificate course gave me the opportunity to learn more about the intricacies of license compatibility. But it was more than that: through the course and conversations with my fellow classmates, I came away with new ideas for opening up my community.–Colleen Cressman, Project Coordinator, Harvard Library Office for Scholarly Communication (MA, USA)

“I’m so glad I got the chance to take the CC Certificate for Librarians course in its beta version. It has been an amazing learning experience. As somebody who leads our OER initiative on campus, the opportunity to learn more about Creative Commons licenses on a much deeper level, engage with our instructor and the rest of the cohort to dispel our misconceptions about the licenses enabled me to  have a better understanding of what each CC licenses mean.”–Regina Gong, Librarian and OER Project Manager, Lansing Community College (MI, USA)


“This certification is a “must have” for librarians working with Open Access and Open Educational Resources.  The content is thorough and engaging, and you will feel your confidence growing as you work with the CC licenses each week.” –Jennifer Cournoyer, Director of Library Services, Quinebaug Valley Community College (CT, USA) 


“I work with minority language speakers as they promote and develop their languages.  For the literacy division of our organization, using CC licenses is already a standard procedure, but I wasn’t aware of this until recently.  I would like to help develop a consistent way to consolidate our knowledge of Open Education Resources and OER ideals within our organization.”–Anonymous


“The peek I had into Open Education Resources was exciting and inspiring!  OER can be the building blocks in a movement to change the way education and literacy are done around the world, providing access to those who are cut off due to lack of finances, while at the same time empowering them to adapt resources to fit their needs and cultures or create their own new resources.”–Anonymous
