Here is an example of an educational textbook that is publicly available under the CC BY license. If you click on the CC BY icon or the linked text, it will take you to..
This license deed. This is a human readable summary of the rights the creator (also known as the licensor) has given to the public, and the conditions that the user of the work (also known as the licensee) must abide by in order to use the work. You can see that the deed clearly states that you are free to share and remix the work as long as you provide attribution.
Of course, Creative Commons offers more than one CC license -- there are six! But the only one you have to worry about for the purposes of the TAACCCT grant is the CC BY license.
The CC BY license is especially designed for the Internet age. I showed you the human-readable summary of the license in the last slide, but what about the license itself?
*But since most of us are not lawyers, we also make the licenses available in a format that normal people can read and understand. * The Commons deed, also known as the “human readable” version of the license, summarizes the most important terms and conditions of the CC BY license into non-technical language. * We can think of the commons deed as the user-friendly interface to the Legal Code beneath.
* At base, the license itself is a traditional legal tool, with the kind of language and text formats that lawyers know and love. We call this the legal code layer of each license, which has been vetted by a global team of legal experts. * This is what makes CC BY enforceable in a court of law.
* The final layer of the license design is the machine-readable metadata. This is what really makes the CC license viable for the Internet age. This small snippet of HTML code summarizes the CC BY license and associated metadata (such as who the work is authored by) into a format that software, search engines, and other kinds of technology can understand. * When you use our license chooser tool, you receive this snippet of HTML code, which you can copy and paste into your webpage.
Here is what our license chooser tool looks like. It is located at creativecommons dot org slash choose.
When you copy and paste the resulting html code into a web page, you get this icon and text. It’s that easy for anyone to add the CC license to their website.
So by fulfilling the CC BY grant requirement, you are joining a global open education movement dedicated to furthering universal access to education.
The OER movement is truly a global movement. All of these initiatives, and more, are using CC licenses to share their educational materials with the world. Including more popular initiatives you may have heard about...
Technical includes open file formats and Ensuring findability, reusability, remixability
Another FAQ: What if we incorporate other OER into our materials? How do we give them credit?
Well here’s a simple example of how Openstax college did it. They culled together different OER and made it into a textbook called Introduction to Sociology.
At the end of the textbook they give credit for all the different pieces. You can see that it’s as simple as a title, link to the original content, name of the author, and a link to the CC license of the original content.
