Module 2. Open Licensing and Copyright in Education

Main author: Eleonora Bassi, Politecnico di Torino


This module presents the essentials of copyright, which are fundamental to better understand the concept of free licences and public domain. A focus on Creative Commons licences follows, including their basic conditions and how to combine them for creating the proper CC licences to use. The final part of the module will be devoted to Open Data and Open Science, the new paradigm that combines the ontological openness of science with the new opportunities given by the internet.
