The concept of Creative Commons was introduced to help enhance creative and free exchange of scholarship and knowledge. This is all done while standing on the shoulders of giants. Instead of restricting their work with a rigid copyright license, producers use Creative Commons licences to allow others to re-use and share their work under a variety of conditions determined by the type of CC license chosen.
In this post, I share with you this handy featuring the major types of Creative Commons licences that you can use with your students in class. The visual is entirely based on guidelines and insights from Creativecommons.org/licences. I also put it under Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs CC VY-NC-ND, meaning you can download, print or share it provided you credit Educational Technology and Mobile Learning as the source and that you keep it free of charge.
