Creative Commons and the ADLC
• Frank McCallum says:
• “If teachers are working on something that is already in existence,
then the copyright is already attached, and any users would have to
ask permission from PHRD to use the material.
• If teachers create something brand new on these days, then it will be
considered an open resource. (In the future, anything that ADLC
creates that is brand new – not modified from an existing course – it
will be open resource).”
