  • But we have one main thing we do across all of our work. And that is simply this: We make sharing content easy, legal, and scalable. And though it might get a little more complicated than that when it comes to the details, that’s really all you need to know about the big picture. We make sharing content easy, legal, and scalable.
  • So how is that possible? How is CC less complicated than the existing system? Very simply, we offer free copyright licenses that creators can attach to their works. And one of those licenses is the license in your grant requirement, the CC BY license.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The works that you will discover are not limited to the US, but originate from all around the world. It doesn ’t matter where the author of the CC licensed work lives, because CC licenses work globally. We’ve worked very hard to make sure of that.
  • 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.
  • Well based on what you’ve learned, I feel confident telling you that the CC licenses are the backbone of the Open educational resources movement. The licenses are the legal framework that allows people and institutions to share and use educational resources as open educational resources. The OER movement is a movement of organizations and individuals that offer free educational resources under CC licenses to anyone in the world.
  • The OER movement prides itself on enabling these things when it comes to educational resources. And all of this is possible because of the CC licenses, especially the CC BY license which enables more permissions than our other licenses.
  • Here ’s one real life example: Collaborative Statistics is an introductory college-level textbook that was licensed under CC BY by its authors Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean.
  • Because they licensed it openly under CC BY, the textbook now lives on the web, on a platform for OER called Connexions, and it has been adapted for use in community colleges around the country. It is being updated to this day.
  • 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

  • • DOL's TAACCCT SGA CC BY requirement. • What is CC BY? • What is Creative Commons? What does it do? How does it work? • What are Open Educational Resources (OER)? • How does the CC BY requirement and OER affect TAACCCT development? • Where to find existing OER to use in your courses. • Factors to consider when authoring and developing your own OER. • Support services Creative Commons is providing DOL TAACCCT grantees.
  • • In order to further the goal of career training and education and encourage innovation in the development of new learning materials, as a condition of the receipt of a Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Grant (“Grant”), the Grantee will be required to license to the public (not including the Federal Government) all work created with the support of the grant (“Work”) under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License (“License”). • This license allows subsequent users to copy, distribute, transmit and adapt the copyrighted work and requires such users to attribute the work in the manner specified by the Grantee. Notice of the License shall be affixed to the Work. SGA Requirements
  • • Work that must be licensed under the CC BY includes both new content created with the grant funds and modifications made to pre-existing, grantee-owned content using grant funds. • Only work that is developed by the grantee with the grant funds is required to be licensed under the CC BY license. Pre-existing copyrighted materials licensed to, or purchased by the grantee from third parties, including modifications of such materials, remain subject to the intellectual property rights the grantee receives under the terms of the particular license or purchase. In addition, works created by the grantee without grant funds do not fall under the CC BY license requirement. • The Department will ensure that deliverables developed with these funds are publicly available.

  • What are OER? How do I find them? How does CC BY and OER affect TAACCCT work? What should I do to make the authoring and development of TAACCCT OER go smoothly?
  • OER are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. Open educational resources include full courses and supplemental resources such as textbooks, images, videos, animations, simulations, assessments, … Core Concept OER are learning materials freely available under a license that allows you to: •Reuse •Revise •Remix •Redistribute
  • Open Educational Resources (OER)
  • ✓ Customization ✓ Accessible versions ✓ Translations ✓ Evolution of resource over time ✓ Affordable versions ✓ Innovation ✓ Discoverability
  • http://open4us.org/find-oer Sourcing OER
  • Purpose 1. Share development costs of learning resources among institutions 2. Quality improvements through collaboration, visibility, creativity, and critical thinking 3. Save time and effort through the reusing and remixing of resources 4. Pedagogical innovations 5. Lower costs to students 6. Open accessibility of resources to previously excluded groups 7. New partnerships and market opportunities “to ensure that materials developed with funds provided by these grants result in work that can be freely reused and improved by others.” How does CC BY and OER affect TAACCCT work?
  • Realizing the Potential 1. Creating OER open policy 2. Sourcing OER 3. Evaluating OER 4. Reusing, revising, remixing OER 5. Designing OER 6. Authoring OER 7. Quality OER (academic, technical, pedagogical) 8. Technology & process for storage, curation, and distribution 9. Combining open content with “open” pedagogies 10. Promoting and marketing open to students 11. Putting in place inter-institutional OER frameworks and agreements 12. Leveraging OER by establishing downstream local, regional, national, and international partners & users 13. Measuring outcomes
  • ✓ Understand CC licenses ✓ Apply CC BY to your materials ✓ Find existing OER to use ✓ Attribute other CC-licensed works ✓ Open policy ✓ Universal Design for Learning and accessibility ✓ Data-driven learning designs ✓ Best practice in creating and managing OER http://open4us.org http://open4us.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Handout_OpenKickoff_Boyoung.doc
