NEBHE adds a new Cost Savings program …

Creative Commons (CC) has joined NEBHE’s Cost Savings Programs and will offer a 15% regional discount on individual and institution purchases of CC professional learning opportunities through June 30, 2022.

Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization that provides Creative Commons licenses and public domain tools that give every person and organization in the world a free, simple, and standardized way to grant copyright permissions for creative and academic works; ensure proper attribution; and allow others to copy, distribute, and make use of those works.

The CC professional learning opportunities available with a discount include:

Option 1 The CC Certificate offers in-depth courses about CC licenses, open practices and the ethos of sharing in our global, digital commons. Discounted price: $425 per participant.

Option 2: CC Certificate Bootcamps (in-person and online) Discounted price: approximately $13,600.

Option 3: Custom CC Workshops (online) The cost depends on the scope of the workshop.
