Creative Commons is an organization, a movement and a set of legal tools. For 18 years Creative Commons has been facilitating access to social, artistic and academic resources. Due to the belief that access to education is a human right and society as a whole will benefit from these open resources, Creative Commons have helped to develop the digital infrastructure to facilitate the sharing of creative resources. During this presentation we will discuss how Creative Commons can help you in the classroom and how an understanding of Creative Commons licenses can not only open up the resources available to you and your students, but can also reduce costs. In addition to this, it will be demonstrated how sharing your work online through Creative Commons licenses and open access platforms helps to contribute to a more innovative and open educational landscape.
