Learn the ccLearn way

Via Mr Stacey comes some interesting news about an educational extension of Creative Commons called ccLearn. ccLearn

“…… is dedicated to realizing the full potential of the Internet to support open learning and open educational resources (OER)”

Now I must profess here to having only a very basic understanding of what all this means in practice. As someone who has often looked to the net to inspire my teaching, anything that makes it easier to access quality free materials is to be applauded.

For the edification of the rest of us who are struggling with the conceptual terminology that underpin initiatives such as this and other like spaces such as OER Commons if there are any readers who can enlighten us please feel free to comment or link back to this post.

  1. Check out http://www.wikieducator.org which has a host of applications and projects whereby educators worldwide can share and distribute and network content without the heavy duty compliance based mandates of COPYRIGHT…..cost, cost, cost.

    Are you familiar with GNU or FOSS which underpin where the Itos’ began their CC journey ?

    Check out these sites for more mind bending applications and history;

    Sue [ http://aquaculturepda.edublogs.org/ ]will probably give you the most current applications of such open accords more than I can at this point in time.
