You may have noticed a few changes at http://creativecommons.org.au. After three or so weeks of non-posting you now know why; we had the site on hold so we could finish off the new-look ccAustralia website! For about four years we’ve been talking about creating a new website for the CC project in Australia. We finally got around to actually doing it.
With this new site we’ve tried to make it much easier for you to find out about us and what we’re up to, learn more about how Creative Commons works through videos and factsheets and delve a little deeper through our research. Because the uptake of CC here in Australia is only becoming more prominent, we’ve also introduced sector launch pages that conveniently couple sector-focused information with filtered content about that sector from the main blog. Now it is much easier to keep up with information on CC uptake in the Creative Industries, Education or by Governments here in Australia.
And because everyone’s all about the social-web these days, we’ve also made it easy for you to keep up with our Twitter account with a slide on the home page that shows the five most recent tweets. Also, with our new ‘tweet this’ and ‘Like this’ buttons you can share our blog entries through your social network of choice with one click.
Watch this space over the coming months as we roll out even more new features!
