Jane manages the School of Open, a collaboration with the Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU). A volunteer community-driven project, the School of Open offers free, online courses on the meaning and impact of "openness" in the digital age and its benefit to creative endeavors, education, research, and beyond. Participants learn how to use free technology and tools, such as Creative Commons licenses, to achieve their goals. Jane also helps creators, institutions, and companies consider and adopt CC tools, while cultivating stories that exhibit the social and commercial value of CC licenses to different communities. As a founding volunteer of P2PU, she has designed and led two online courses on creative nonfiction writing, a third on Creative Commons for K-12 Educators, and hopes to explore a fourth on Open governance. She is based in Los Angeles, California.

Full Description

Creative Commons are a librarian's best friend when it comes to explaining copyright, pointing others to free academic and educational resources, and highlighting reuse and attribution best practices. Learn more about Creative Commons -- the organization and its mission; its copyright licenses; its public domain tools, especially CC0 (read CC Zero); how to discover, find, and attribute CC-licensed content; and how to license your own content with a CC license. Will will also go over a few of the major organizations and institutions who have adopted CC licensing.
