Hip Hip Hurray for CC!!

These two weeks on ONL172 has been real great fun! It has dealed with open learning and sharing digital literacy and I find that this is the most interesting with this course, so far;)
As we all know there are several multiways to produce digital material today but many of us don´t know how to publish and if they do many others don´t know what rules and regulations there are for publishing learning objects legally.
These two weeks has focused on this and the great idea of CC license (Creative Commons license) has really taken me away. Creative Commons is just a brilliant solution to make things happen in the field of spreading and explore knowledge. I hope Creative Commons will grow and make publishing easier within the filed of science and education. Please join Creative Commons and share there ideas to others!

  1. I agree with you that it is difficult to know and master all rules on copyright. I have been very careful with publishing. Only used my own photos lately. But after watching "Webbstjärnans" very infomative video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7ZjudT7u_M) on Creative Commons I feel I understand this better.

    1. Great, Monica! I like Webstjärnan a lot. They have much useful material.

  2. Yes Creative Commons is a wonderful solution indeed, but I think it's no so well spread. Even the authors who wouldn't be against allowing to use their content doesn't know much about CC. So some big informational campaign would be useful :)

    1. I wish further more could join Creative Commons. But since the tradition among teacher is not to share things it will take time to really spread things using CC.

  3. Yes, Creative Commons is very useful (or may I say should be very useful). But I also think there is a tradition among us in higher education to not share teaching material. It s always possible to enhance the material and maybe it is not up to standard (to be reviewed by all colleagues) and this thoughts can hinder the openess.

    1. You are so right, Ulf. Teachers are maybe the most conservative group among all. Sharing things is a bit of a new phenomenon in school but it is slowly changing for the better. They realize that everyone doesn´t have to invent the wheel every time ;)

  4. Hi!
    Our group identified the same problems with copyright, with it being such a grey area. Also different universities, have different rules for sharing teaching and learning materials which doesn't help either in making the knowledge sharing more universal. Moving towards a single collaborative platform with a external regulating entity seems to be one way to go in my point of view. Much like Wikipedia, but moderated, ensuring authorship also.
