In a nutshell: what to do within ‘licencing’

Questions and suggestions

In this category we present the licensing options for Open Educational Resources (OER). The aim is to find a suitable licence for the planned projects. We would like to invite all project partners to take the following steps:

  • Please read the introductory post on open licences and the overview of Creative Commons licences if you need information on this.
  • We recommend publishing projects under either CC0 or CC BY or CC BY SA to allow for the most open reuse legally possible. Think about whether one of these licences might suit your project.
  • Write a blog post (and tag it with your city) outlining which licence you have chosen for your planned OER and why.

We are happy to help with any questions or specific challenges. Write them as a reply under this post. Perhaps your question will be of interest to other partners.
