What is Creative Commons?

The short animations below are a fun and simple way to learn about Creative 
Commons. Both were developed by Creative Commons Australia and are based on the kooky characters, Mayer and Bettle. They are a great resource to use in the classroom when teaching students about Creative Commons. 

The first animation focuses on the basics of what Creative Commons is and how it 
works.  This animation is available under Creative Commons licence, Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 Australia, which means that you can remix and share provided it is under the same licence terms and as long as you attribute Creative Commons Australia. The sequel, introducing new character Flik, provides a little more detail about using Creative Commons to licence your own work.  It is available under Creative Commons licence, Attribution 2.5 Australia, which means that you can remix and share as you wish, as you long as you attribute Creative Commons Australia.
