I use Creative Commons content in my work so it is important to model expectations for other educators. This particular page within Creative Commons helps clarify to my student teachers and classroom teachers the licensing aspect of Creative Commons. Being able to see the actual choices in the licenses quickly and clearly makes a difference.

Technical Remarks:

No technical issues or concerns.

Very easy to understand. I spent about 30 minutes viewing the comics, the projects, and the wiki. Many course developers have questions about licensing the material they create, especially learning objects, this site will be very useful in explaining options to them. The material can also be used with our students, especially those creating digital content such as blogs and music.

I spent about 20 minutes with viewing this site and found it to be of great value. I view the how it works cartoon on the concept of creative commons. The material is easily understood and makes it fun to learn the concepts that are involved. The maybe should have given a little bit of an understanding of the issues that are copyright and should present a way to find digital content to use in their presentations without having to use permission and paying for it. But in all the site design was well spectacular and I would very think of it as user friendly.

I spent about 30 minutes with this site and found it to have good production value. I viewed the "How It Works" cartoon on the concept of creative commons. The material is presented in a way that is easily understood and makes it fun to learn the concepts involved! This site should give students a better understanding of copyright issues and provide a way to find digital content to use in their presentations without having to pay or ask permission.

Technical Remarks:

The site layout is well-designed--clear, uncluttered, easy to navigate, in other words, user-friendly. I like the choice of fonts and colors, which make for easy reading.

Information competence is a component of our course for teaching online. This
collection makes it easy for students who create online learning materials to
understand legislation for sharing of online materials.

Technical Remarks:

Information on how to mark content with copyright and terms of use on a web page
is provided in HTML with a display button through easy-to-follow guidelines.
