Creative Commons And CC Certificate Inspiration
Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization that builds and stewards the legal tools, technologies, and programs to power open movements around the world. CC provides the open licenses and public domain tools that have become the global standard for sharing, helping people share knowledge and creativity with simple, legal permissions. CC licenses have been applied to more than 1.6 billion works across 9 million websites, and are used by global movements in open education, arts and culture, government, science, and more. In response to the growing use of CC licenses globally, and the corresponding need for open licensing expertise, CC developed the CC Certificate training.
The CC Certificate
The CC Certificate provides an-in depth study of Creative Commons licenses and open practices, uniquely developing participants’ open licensing proficiency and understanding of the broader context for open advocacy. The training content targets copyright law, CC legal tools, as well as the values and good practices of working in the global, shared commons. The CC Certificate is currently offered as a 10-week online course or a one-week, in-person bootcamp to an English-speaking audience of educators and academic librarians.
Participants who successfully complete the CC Certificate (achieving a 90% or higher on graded materials) receive a digital certificate that recognizes specialization in open licensing and the commons, and the ability to help others understand and implement open licenses. Läs mer här
