On-Demand - 4-Part Creative Commons Webinar Series (Part Two): Deep Dive into Creative Commons Licensing

Description: In this webinar from Creative Commons, you will learn all the details of Creative Commons licenses. Creative Commons offers six different open licenses and two additional legal tools. Participants will learn how the licenses and legal tools work together to provide the foundation for the open movement, giving creators far more control over their works than traditional copyright law allows.

Learning Outcomes:

At the end of the session, attendees will be able to:

·        Describe each of the six different Creative Commons licenses;

·        Describe the two Creative Commons legal tools and how they differ from the licenses; and

·        Understand how CC licenses work with copyright law to give creators more freedom and control.

Who Should Attend: This webinar is geared towards any librarian from any library type and in any role that is interested in open access, Open Educational Resources (OER), Wikipedia, open science, open data, and any other aspect of the open movement made possible through Creative Commons licensing.
