In the framework of the OpenMed project, UNIMED is organizing a webinar on Open licensing in the Erasmus+ CBHE projects.
24 July 2018 at h17.45 CEST (CET Converter)
The Erasmus+ programme promotes the open access to materials, documents and media that are useful for learning, teaching, training, youth work and are produced by projects funded by the programme. It is indeed a requirement for any funded project to make project outputs available for the public in digital form, freely accessible through the Internet under open licences.
Dr. Cable Green, Director of Open Education at Creative Commons, will provide an overview of open licensing and OER which can be applied to CBHE projects, and practical examples on how to deal with the Erasmus+ Open Access requirement, in terms of how to use Creative Commons licenses, an overview of the 6 type of CC licenses, and which types of license are suitable for OER to ensure that publicly funded materials provide value to the general public and to ensure long-term access to the results.
Dr. Cable Green

Cable works with the global open education community to leverage open licensing, open content, and open policies to significantly improve access to quality, affordable, education and research resources so everyone in the world can attain their education goals. He’s a leading advocate for open licensing policies that ensure publicly funded education materials are freely and openly available.
Cable helps lead the global open education movement and is the Director of Open Education at Creative Commons(CC) – a nonprofit organization at the center of an international movement to promote sharing of creativity and knowledge. CC provides the well-known suite of open licenses that have become the global standard used by governments, institutions and individuals across culture, education, and science, to promote sharing, collaboration and innovation. The CC licenses are everywhere—1.3+ billion are in use across 9 million websites—making it easy for anyone to freely access and use open educational resources.
