5. CC for Educators
Creative Commons powers the open education movement with tools that help create better, more flexible and sustainable open educational resources (OER), practices, and policies.
Creative Commons licenses are the most popular open licenses among education projects around the world. This unit will introduce you to the specifics of using CC licenses and CC licensed content for education purposes.
This unit has five sections:
