  • CC is the law catching up with the way the internet actually works.But think about all the ways the internet has changed in the past ten years. It’s time to think about how CC will evolve.
  • (Use whatever numbers from this list you like.)Half a billion CC-licensed objects, and those are just the ones we can count. There are actually many more.Video: We just recently announced four million CC-licensed videos on YoutubeWikipedia: 19 million articles in 270 languagesWikimedia commons – Just last week, announced 15 million open access resourcesIn Open Access repositories that we track, 23+ million articlesThat doesn’t include all repositories, or every OA journal.The bottom line: each of these fields values from CC licensing, but there’s a greater value in their ability to share with and borrow from each other.Interoperability: Compatible metadata standards, so users can find and sort data across different fields.
  • Open license is key.Free as in free beer and free as in freedom
  • MOOCs are trendy right now.That trendiness presents a huge opportunity – data of thousands of students’ experienceWe need to Capture that data and use it to improve and inform pedagogy
  • A Basic Guide to Open Educational Resources (OER)Guidelines for Open Educational Resources (OER) in Higher EducationPerspectives on Open and Distance Learning: Open Educational Resources: An Asian PerspectivePerspectives on Open and Distance Learning: Open Educational Resources and Change in Higher Education: Reflections from PracticeA report on the Re-use and Adaptation of Open Educational Resources (OER): An Exploration of Technologies AvailableCopyright and Open Educational Resources
  • One that highlights their reports on Governments and Open Policy - you can mention the "Open Policy Network" and talk about why open policy is a key lever.
  • OA = Public access to scientific and scholarly research that the public pays forResearch Councils UK has proposed a CC BY licensing policy; so in addition to free online access the policy would require that researchers apply CC BY open license to communicate reuse rights to downstream usersEU plans to make research funded through Horizon 2020 program open access (80 billion Euros)Potential expansion of NIH public access policy to 11 other large U.S. federal agencies with big research budgets – authors must deposit articles in publicly accessible repository within 12 months of publicationBudapest Open Access Initiative reinforced need for governments to support OA policy, recommends CC BY as best way to meet OANew research methods like text/data mining are coming to the fore and researcher need free public access (and potentially reuse rights) to accomplish this
  • 2653 CC licensed journals in DOAJ - institutional Open Access mandates - publishes ~50,000 CC BY open access articles per yearBioMed Central publishes ~100,000 CC BY open access articles per year
  • In 2011-2012, Creative Commons (CC) and other open organizations were contacted by multiple institutions and governments seeking assistance to develop materials and strategies for open policies. The need for open policy support was amplified at the CC 2011 Global Summit in Warsaw, Poland. CC Affiliates from 35 countries called for a central hub where open policies could be shared and discussed. They were clear: without clearly defined support, open policies are significantly less likely to be introduced and adopted. In October 2012 Creative Commons continued this exploration by convening a meeting of “open” leaders to brainstorm possibilities and challenges in developing resources and services to increase open policies.Across various sectors, including open educational resources, open access, open science, open government data, etc.
  • The mission of the Open Policy Network is to foster the creation, adoption and implementation of open policies and practices that advance the public good by supporting open policy advocates, organizations and policy makers, connecting open policy opportunities with assistance, and sharing open policy information.Initial work products:Develop model open policies and billsDevelop open policy implementation kits with slides and talking pointsProvide as-needed consulting / mentoring / networkingFinding, curating and posting existing open policies / lawslink out to existing open policy sites (e.g., ROARMAP and OER Policy Registry)
  • California and British Columbia – government funding CC BY-licensed texts for a total of 90 postsecondary classes, just in the past two months
  • Here’s our network. Here are the organizations and institutions we collaborate with. We don’t insist on being the center.Quote from Brewster Kahle: “Lots of winners and no central points of control.”He’s talking about how the Internet works. No one’s in charge of it.That’s also the way our community works.
