Description:

Licensing: Knowing Your Rights, is the second of six units in the professional development course, Integrating Open Educational Resources in the Classroom — a Course for Teachers. Developed by David Wiley, the lessons contained in this unit about licensing explain the copyright issues related to open educational resources in detail. The lesson opens by discussing the general intent and function of copyright law and the complexities associated with the idea of "fair use." The lesson then turns to the Creative Commons licenses, the legal mechanisms most often used to license open educational resources. The lesson ends with an interactive game that lets you test your knowledge of open licenses.
