The Creative Commons (CC) Certificate is a training program and investment in open advocates, educators and leaders around the world. CC built the program to strengthen people’s practical expertise in open licensing, copyright, and recommended practices in open knowledge and culture movements. The program runs 10-week online courses three times per year; while there are courses for Educators, Academic Librarians and Open Culture, everyone is welcome to join. Additionally, CC offers 1-week “bootcamps” for small groups, upon request. With CC-recognized open licensing expertise, graduates note they become the "point people" for open licensing at their institutions. Read what else graduates are saying.
In this webinar, the CC Certificate team will share an overview of the courses and debut the new alumni program, which will harness the network of over 1500 graduates in 65 countries. The CC Certificate team will also share ways to engage with the materials or get involved in smaller-scale training opportunities, for those seeking shorter time commitments!
