Washington DC, USA
Video Interview with Creative Commons CEO
When it comes to finding free and open educational resources many educators used to face an uphill battle. This all changed with the foundation of Creative Commons (CC) by a group of thought leaders, education experts, technologists, legal scholars, investors, entrepreneurs and philanthropists back in 2001.
The idea being that anybody (including educators) can freely share their intellectual content through a cleverly crafted licensing system that complies with current copyright laws. The first version of the licenses was introduced in 2002 with a specific set of permissions established by the Creative Commons foundation; since then three versions have been released.
The Creative Commons licensing system allow content creators to share as much or little content as they want to. The group celebrated their 10th year anniversary this past December and currently are in the process of putting the finishing touches to version 4.0 of the licensing scheme.
This week I had the opportunity to sit down with their CEO, Catherine Casserly for a Google+ hangout to talk about Creative Commons, their vision for education and how educators worldwide can benefit from its use."
