Do you want to unlock the full potential of Wikimedia Commons and harness the power of Creative Commons licenses? If so, you’re in for a treat! Last month, we had a thrilling webinar, “Open Unveiling: A Practical Session for Mastery of Wikimedia Commons and CC Licenses.”
In today’s digital age, the sharing and dissemination of knowledge are more accessible than ever before. Wikimedia Commons, a treasure trove of freely usable media files, and Creative Commons licenses, a revolutionary framework for content sharing and collaboration, have democratized the way we access, use, and contribute to open knowledge.
Our webinar was designed for beginners and enthusiasts alike, offering a practical session to empower you with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate Wikimedia Commons and understand the ins and outs of Creative Commons licenses.
At the beginning of the webinar we explored how to contribute and navigate through this amazing community driven platform; Wikimedia Commons, like how to upload pictures or videos using the correct licensing.
We also went further to show and explain how to give attribution in research papers, visual media, videos and music, books, artworks and photograph.
Emphasis was laid on choosing the right Creative commons licenses and attribution for your own creations.
And in this session of our monthly webinar we would be having Dr Helen Chuma-Okoro (Research Fellow, Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (NIALS) speak to us.
