ABOUT OTAN TRAINING: Workshop Descriptions

Workshop title Licensing Your Creations (Copyright & Creative Commons) 
Workshop description

You deserve proper credit and attribution for the work you do. This includes your video productions, classroom presentations, worksheets, workbooks or other creations you compile for your learners. As your colleagues recognize the quality of your work, you should always license your creations so other teachers and users know exactly how you intend for them to use your work. Open Educational Resources require materials are "resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license" (NETP, 2010, pg. 56). This session will show you how to apply this special intellectual property licensing using Creative Commons licensing and other tools to make this process simple and fast. Sample files and resources will be provided. It is recommended that you take Open Educational Resources in Adult Education prior to taking this session.


Participants should have a good foundational understanding of word processing and presentation software as well as being comfortable in basic computer skills and navigating the Internet. This session will demonstrate licensing features using Microsoft ® products on the Windows operating system.
