One of the cool things about the Creative Commons educators course I’m currently taking (aside from a really well-written syllabus and a great community to be in) is that I was told I could suggest alternative assignments if I felt the assignment does not fit my needs or context.
So for our first assignment about the history of Creative Commons, I did not want to reproduce the same knowledge others had already done so well and just do it in a different format.. I wanted to add value.
I also felt like…the whole point of doing something openly is to allow others to reuse and remix, right? So I basically took Christina Hendricks’ really cool infographic and cut it up and scattered it around on Google slides…and interleaved it with my own thoughts from an Egyptian perspective on copyright and CC.
Here are the Google slides and they are open for comments, so feedback welcome!
