Being a good digital citizen is important, but all too often when students find pictures or other works online, they fail to understand what they can re-use and what they can't. This webinar takes a brief look at Creative Commons licensing and why it's important for students to understand it. Jerry Swiatek also discusses how to determine if something is available under Creative Commons and then explores the process of how to license something with a Creative Commons license.
