Creative Commons Course Guide for Educators

This book was adapted from the Creative Commons Certificate course resources. The book is an in-depth look into CC licenses, open practices and the ethos of the Commons. The book is composed of readings, quizzes, discussions, and practical exercises to develop learners’ open skills, and educator guides have been included*.

This book is open to everyone, from university students and entry-level professionals to experts in the field of education. Students will learn how to adapt and innovate on existing openly licensed materials, and educators will also learn how to best support learners accessing a wider array of open knowledge resources.

The book is publicly available to read online. It is available for download in PDF, ePUB, MOBI, Open Document, and Pressbooks XML formats as well. Course content is available in this book. However, accessing this CC BY content is not a substitute for enrolling in the official course, and does not qualify you for CC Certification.
