What is the CC BY requirement in the TAACCCT grant?
In order to further the goal of career training and education and encourage innovation in the development of new learning materials, as a condition of the receipt of a Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Grant (“Grant”), the Grantee will be required to license to the public (not including the Federal Government) all work created with the support of the grant (“Work”) under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License (“License”). This license allows subsequent users to copy, distribute, transmit and adapt the copyrighted work and requires such users to attribute the work in the manner specified by the Grantee. Notice of the License shall be affixed to the Work. SGA Requirements
Work that must be licensed under the CC BY includes both new content created with the grant funds and modifications made to pre-existing, grantee-owned content using grant funds. Only work that is developed by the grantee with the grant funds is required to be licensed under the CC BY license. Pre-existing copyrighted materials licensed to, or purchased by the grantee from third parties, including modifications of such materials, remain subject to the intellectual property rights the grantee receives under the terms of the particular license or purchase. In addition, works created by the grantee without grant funds do not fall under the CC BY license requirement. The Department will ensure that deliverables developed with these funds are publicly available. SGA Requirements
Purpose 1.Share development costs of learning resources among institutions 2.Quality improvements through collaboration, visibility, creativity, and critical thinking 3.Save time and effort through the reusing and remixing of resources 4.Pedagogical innovations 5.Lower costs to students 6.Open accessibility of resources to previously excluded groups 7.New partnerships and market opportunities “to ensure that materials developed with funds provided by these grants result in work that can be freely reused and improved by others.” How does CC BY and OER affect TAACCCT work?
FAQ: What if we have a mix of our own content plus proprietary licensed materials?
What is Creative Commons? What is CC BY?
Nonprofit organization Free copyright licenses Founded in 2001 Operates worldwide
We make sharing content easy, legal, and scalable. What do we do?
Free copyright licenses that creators can attach to their works. How do we do it?
CC licenses are unique because they are expressed in three ways.
With the CC BY license, you retain your copyright, while granting some uses of your work… and others must give you credit / attribution.
CC BY grants the public permission to copy, distribute, perform, display, and build upon your work, as long as they give you credit for your work.
