Creative Commons Resources
Whether you are looking for the perfect image to use in your course or looking for the right sound for a video, it is important to get permission, and more importantly, the right kind of permission to use works created by others. It doesn’t matter if you want to use audio, video, images, icons, etc. Whatever the media type, you need to have rights to use the material legally.
A Creative Commons (CC) license is one of several public copyright licenses that enable the free distribution of an otherwise copyrighted "work". A CC license is used when an author wants to give other people the right to share, use, and build upon a work that they (the author) have created.
This curated list provides links to resources to help you understand what CC licenses are, how to use CC licenses, and how to apply CC licenses to your own work.
