ccLearnis being launched as a part of the Creative Commons efforts.Here is what they say about it:
ccLearnis a division ofCreativeCommonswhich is dedicated to realizing the full potential of the Internet to support open learning and open educational resources (OER).Our mission is to minimize barriers to sharing and reuse of educational materials — legal barriers,technical barriers,and social barriers.
- Withlegal barriers,we advocate for licensing of educational materials under interoperable terms,such as those provided by Creative Commons licenses,that allow unhampered modification,remixing,and redistribution.We also educate teachers,learners,and policy makers about copyright and fair-use issues pertaining to education.
- Withtechnical barriers,we promote interoperability standards and tools to facilitate remixing and reuse.
- Withsocial barriers,we encourage teachers and learners to re-use educational materials available on the Web,and to build on each other's contributions.
I look forward to the methods they will use to educate teachers about it!I enjoyed learning about ccLearn from P aul Trafford over at Educausewho saw a presentation recently about Open Courseware Sustainabilityand ccLearn's part in that.
