Creative Commons (CC) (https://creativecommons.org/) is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to helping build and sustain a thriving commons of shared knowledge and culture. Together with an extensive member network and multiple partners, CC builds capacity, develops practical solutions, and advocates for better open sharing of knowledge and culture that serves the public interest.
MHEC’s contract with CC offers a 15% discount for existing and custom Creative Commons licensing professional learning opportunities to staff and institutional members of the Midwestern Higher Education and its sister compacts through June 2023.
In this webinar, Creative Commons will provide an overview of its CC Certificate program (https://certificates.creativecommons.org/), which offers in-depth courses about CC licenses, copyright and open practices for their global, shared digital commons.
Join MHEC as CC shares tips and what to expect in the Certificate program. They’ll share course content, insights from their participant surveys, what’s coming next, and answer any questions. Alumna Andrea Bearman of TrineOnline, will also share her experience completing the CC Certificate, and what she’s done with the knowledge since graduating.
This webinar will be one hour with time allotted for questions. Resources, as they are available, will be posted to our Past Events page of the MHEC website: https://www.mhec.org/convening/past-events.
