Educators

No matter where you are in your exploration of open textbooks, there are resources to assist.

Underpinning open is the idea of unhindered access. Traditionally, access to information has gone hand-in-hand with copyright. Open education and practices add a layer to existing copyright that facilitates the sharing on information. It is you choice whether you want a backgrounder on copyright in general or want to dive straight into Creative Commons, the organization established to free information. From there, you might be interested in a deeper exploration of Creative Commons licensing options.
