CC Certificate Work

Unit 1: What is Creative Commons?

As a part of the Creative Commons Beta Certificate Program for Librarians I’m participating in this semester, I made an infographic telling the story of the formation of Creative Commons and the state of Creative Commons today. It was so much fun putting a Stranger Things theme to this, using the Make It Stranger generator for the heading, Canva for the layout, and The Noun Project for the icons.

Unit 2: Copyright Law

In weeks 2 and 3 of the Creative Commons Beta Certificate Program for Librarians, we covered many aspects of copyright law and other areas of intellectual property. Here is my infographic which provides an introduction to copyright law. Again, I used Canva for the layout, and The Noun Project for the icons.

Unit 3: Anatomy of a CC License

In weeks 4 and 5 of the Creative Commons Beta Certificate Program for Librarians, we looked at CC license design and terminology, scope, types, and enforceablility. Here is my infographic which provides a recipe for making a CC license. Again, I used Canva for the layout, and The Noun Project for the icons.

Unit 4: Using CC Licenses and CC-Licensed Works

In weeks 6 and 7 of the Creative Commons Beta Certificate Program for Librarians, we discussed choosing and applying CC licenses, finding and reusing CC-licensed work, and remixing CC-licensed work. Here is my infographic which provides some examples of making derivative works from CC-licensed material, attributing those original works, and licensing for the newly created works. As in past infographics, I used Canva for the layout, and The Noun Project for the icons used in the remixing.

Unit 6: Creative Commons for Librarians

In weeks 10 and 11 of the Creative Commons Beta Certificate Program for Librarians, we looked at Open Access (OA) and Open Education Resources (OER), specifically from a librarian perspective. Here is my infographic which gives an overview of OA, OER, the relationship of OA and OER, and the benefits of OA and OER to faculty and students at Montana State University. Again, I used Canva for the layout, and The Noun Project for the icons.

Final Project: The Most Important Thing We Learned in the Certificate Program and Why That Was the Most Important Thing

In our final week of the Creative Commons Beta Certificate Program for Librarians, we reflected on what was the most important thing we learned from the certificate program and why that was most important. We were asked to write up to 500 words on that topic and to provide an accompanying representation of those thoughts. For the accompaniment, I used Canva for the layout, and The Noun Project for the icons.
