Copyright & OERs

Open Educational Resources differ from other commercial materials not only because they can be shared at no cost to the reader, but also because they employ an open licence that allows creators to decide if their works can be adapted or remixed, and whether commercial use is permitted or not. Such open licence is called Creative Commons.

To know more about the different Creative Commons licences and how to use them, check the Creative Commons section in the navigation menu.
