A Handy Visual Featuring The 6 Types of Creative Commons Licences Students Should Know about

February 8, 2017
The concept of Creative Commons was introduced to help enhance creative and free exchange of scholarship in a collaborative knowledge-based economy. Instead of chaining 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 today’s post we are sharing with you a visual we have created awhile ago featuring the major types of Creative Commons licences so you and your students can better understand when and how to use CC licensed works. The visual is based on guidelines found in Creativecommons.org/licences.
