Tech Bit #11 – Creative Commons

Tech Bit

The Internet is a wonderful resource for class materials. But knowing what is permitted by copyright can be daunting. However, with Creative Commons, reusing and remixing the materials is expected and encouraged. If you see the Creative Commons logo, you can use it legally as often as needed.

Flickr, a picture resource site, hosts both full copyright and Creative Commons works, but you can search all of Flickr for only Creative Commons pictures by clicking “Advanced Search” then checking Creative Commons towards the bottom.

Another Creative Commons resource is Connexions. As the site puts it, “Connexions is a place to view and share educational material made of small knowledge chunks called modules that can be organized.” All material found on Connexions is free to use and to transform in your class. In addition, Connexions may be searched or browsed by subject.
