Licensing and reuse
The primary licenses for Free Learning are Creative Commons (CC-BY and CC BY-SA, CC BY-NC and CC BY-NC-SA). These licenses drive innovation reuse and creativity. Furthermore, they strongly support the overall GBA goal of sharing early grade reading educational materials, open textbooks and open educational resources.
We are collaborating with several content platforms who are addressing the increasing public demand for sharing under CC licenses. We encourage all projects developing content to visit creativecommons.org for more information.
Creative Commons has developed a cc toolkit for user-generated content platforms. This toolkit covers the elements for a basic Creative Commons platform integration, including aligning legal terms to CC tools; installing the CC license chooser; displaying CC licensed content with the correct logos and links; and how to communicate CC to your users.
