eMentoring and Creative Commons Australia

I am very pleased to see that the Aged Care Queensland eMentoring CD ROM has been mentioned on the Creative Commons Australia website.

The eMentoring CD ROM is to be published with a Creative Commons BY Attribution license. Creative Commons Australia says

The publication of a single CD Rom under a CC licence might not seem like a big step, but it’s one of the first examples Australia-wide of a community service organisation working at the ground level putting real time and thought into providing the most appropriate copyright policy for their resources. The licensing makes the CD Rom much more valuable to the community it is seeking to service. Not only can it be spread far and wide, aged care workers in the field can create customised versions for their regions, teachers and trainers can feel confident reproducing and distributing the information for their classes, and workers from other sectors can use it as the basis for eMentoring Handbooks relevant to their own workers.
