cclearn Welcome to ccLearn — ccLearn

Welcome to ccLearn —
ccLearn is a division of Creative Commons which is dedicated to realizing the full potential of the Internet to support open learning and open educational resources (OER). Our mission is to minimize barriers to sharing and reuse of educational materials — legal barriers, technical barriers, and social barriers.

With legal barriers, we advocate for licensing of educational materials under interoperable terms, such as those provided by Creative Commons licenses, that allow unhampered modification, remixing, and redistribution. We also educate teachers, learners, and policy makers about copyright and fair-use issues pertaining to education.
With technical barriers, we promote interoperability standards and tools to facilitate remixing and reuse.
With social barriers, we encourage teachers and learners to re-use educational materials available on the Web, and to build on each other’s contributions.

ccLearn is launching over the summer of 2007 with generous support from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, working closely with members of the Foundation’s Open Educational Resources Program. This is an international project, and we will be working with open educational sites and resources from around the world.

They hired a gentleman from Duke to be the executive director. I interviewed for that position.
