The Help menu explains the four conditions that comprise Creative Commons licenses. To create a license, click the condition(s) you want to select [1]. The name of the license displays at the bottom of the page [2].

Notes:

  • All Creative Commons licenses require attribution, so when others distribute or reuse your work, they must always credit you for your original creation. If you select more than one condition, the Attribution condition will always be selected.
  • The Attribution-ShareAlike license is used by Wikipedia and is recommended for materials that would benefit from incorporating content from Wikipedia and similarly licensed projects. With this license, others can copy, distribute, and use your course content or altered forms of your course content (even for commercial purposes) as long as they credit you and use the same Creative Commons license.
