Q: How are Creative Commons licenses being used by academics?

A: I don't wanna say that academics are sort of afraid of change or sort of slow-moving. I haven't seen it used as much. There are a few cool examples like MIT OpenCourseWare. They basically put all their notes online, like lecture notes, references to the books they use, videos, stuff like that. They don't lose anything because people in India are looking at their notes, but they gain a lot by sharing all that knowledge with the world. So that's really cool. I'm not sure if anyone on campus, like teachers, are really big into it or license their writing or research or notes or anything under it [CC]. But there are a few really cool examples of it being used in education.
