Practical workshop: Using Creative Commons copyright licenses for teaching
By Rebecca Mackinnon, Assistant Professor, Journalism and Media Studies
Date: Thursday, 9 October 2008
Time: 4p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Venue: Foundation Chamber, G/F, Eliot Hall, The University of Hong Kong
About the workshop:
As educators and researchers, how can we share our course material as widely
possible and maximize the impact of our ideas while getting proper
How can we better educate our students about intellectual property? Creative
Commons provides some innovative solutions to these problems.
The 2002 brainchild of Stanford Law Professor Lawrence Lessig, Creative
is a new and more flexible form of copyright licensing that enables one to
publish, perform, or disseminate works with "some rights reserved" instead
the traditional "all rights reserved." This enables works to be more easily
and legally shared while still requiring attribution of the original creator
under law. Educators worldwide are using CC licenses to share their
not only with their own students but also with the entire world. Famous
examples of how global education is being facilitated by CC licenses include
the MIT Open Courseware project, the global Open Courseware Consortium, and
Chinese-language Opensource Opencourseware Prototype System (www.myOOPS.org
The Creative Commons Hong Kong licenses will be launched on October 25th
(http://jmsc.hku.hk/cms/content/view/433/1/), preceded by a public lecture
Prof Lawrence Lessig on October 24
This workshop in advance of the launch will cover:
1) An overview of Creative Commons licenses and examples of how they are

educate students about copyright law;
3) Practical demonstration of how to publish online course materials,
lecture powerpoints, and other kinds of works under Creative Commons
