Open content licensing for educators

December 3, 2012 – December 15, 2012 all-day

A free international community learning opportunity, OCL4Ed is an online workshop is designed for educators and students who want to learn more about open education resources, copyright, and creative commons licenses.

The course materials were developed as a collaborative project by volunteers from the OER Foundation, WikiEducator, the OpenCourseWare Consortium and Creative Commons with funding support from UNESCO. The course will provide prerequisite knowledge required by educators to legally remix open education materials and help institutions to take informed decisions about open content licenses.

2012 is a significant year for open education. We are celebrating 10 years since UNESCO adopted the term “Open Educational Resources” (OER). In joining the global celebrations, the OER Foundation will host a free OCL4Ed workshop.
