CC & OER 2010
Feb 01, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes
More news from Creative Commons about their (now extinct) ccLearn program. The big news is that "the ccLearn brand and website are going away." We are being told that this is "a big win" for open educational resources (OERs) and that Creative Commons is increasing staff committment to OERs because it's now included in the responsibilities of "our CEO, Creative Director, CTO, GC, and VP." I was never enthusiastic about ccLearn so I guess I shouldn't be too critical of the changes at Creative Commons. I'm hoping they understand that they are a part of a wider OER movement that has a use for Creative Commons but is not defined by it.
