As part of a one-year project designed to support and strengthen the work of CC’s Global Affiliate Network, CC is leading the development of a series of toolkits and learning materials. These materials are meant to promote the broad understanding and adoption of open policies and practices, and will be formed entirely from open content, made to be shared over the web and from hand to hand.
These toolkits will be primarily designed for use by global affiliate groups, both those that are established in the network and those that have yet to establish formal affiliation (sans MOU). Community members in these affiliate groups will range in experience level relating to Creative Commons history and current work, but we assume they have basic technology skills and are motivated to advocate for open policies and practices related to the subject areas these toolkits will focus on. Other audiences may make use of the instructional material, but some content may be less useful to audiences who have little or no knowledge of Creative Commons work or those who have limited access to technology.
The following topics have been identified as key areas in the global community that would benefit from the creation and use of handy, just-in-time information and support materials.
- Basics of Creative Commons
- Education / OER
- Science / Data
- Creative Industries
Each toolkit will content general info, images, video from existing CC resources, slide decks for presentations, printable reader notes/cards, FAQ, etc
