Welcoming your ideas below

Jane Hornibrook: While working for Creative Commons NZ I've had feedback from many people reusing Creative Commons licensed work (such as content on WikiEducator!) who would like some good examples of how to attribute (or credit) others in a proper manner. The human readable deed of a licence doesn't spell out how exactly what you need to do, and some feel that the legal codes don't either (at least not in an easy-to-understand way). We previously had a go at providing some examples of good practice on our website, but some updated best practice tips have been developed by since then.

I thought it could be an interesting contribution to make an updated version of our New Zealand 'using a CC licensed work' page here in WikiEducator first, drawing on various resources that have come out lately. Any thoughts? --Janecc 04:45, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes Jane - and if there could be a version in 'Plain English' - because often, the copyright attribution language seems so legally-bound, it's hard to figure out what it means - and how it can be applied. - Randy Fisher 18:14, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Ellen Feig: I would like to create a module that focuses on the growing field of literature by survivors of conflict including Ishmael Beah and Dinaw Mengustu. The module would be appropriate for use in either a freshman or sophomore college composition class.--Ellen Feig 13:51, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Great project - have you thought about the scope, timeline and resources for it? We can create a page in the wiki... - Randy Fisher 15:54, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
