Yours, Mine & Ours: Copyright and Creative Commons in Education & Training


New online social spaces make tracing works back to their original owner problematic, while at the same time new licensing options make it even easier for people to share and use content legally.


Purpose:  This session gives an easy-to-understand view of the issues surrounding copyright and intellectual property, and describes several options for using works while at the same time staying within legal guidelines. It is now possible to easily find art, photography, music, video, content, and even software on the web for free. All that is needed is a basic understanding of attribution and copyright regulations.



In this session, we will cover:

  • open attribution
  • creative commons licensing
  • GNU licensing
  • fair use
  • open content

In addition, we will discuss:

  • how and when you can use different CC-licenses in the same material
  • technical means to automate not only the crediting process for using such materials, but also to add additional resources to e-learning as desired.
  • planning how best to utilize these emerging technologies and capabilities.
