CC for Educators

This webpage tracks developments and provides information about the use of Creative Commons licences in the education sector in Australia.


Education is one of the fields in which Creative Commons can be of most use. It provides a source of (legal) materials for reuse by teachers and students; a tool for sharing your materials with other educators and schools; and a good way of teaching people about copyright in a positive way, focusing on what you can do rather than what you can't.
