    1. Moulton's writing on the transparency fixes the copyright, and the words can easily be compared to the student notes

      It should be fair and reasonable for educators to own their lectures if their academic employers agreed to the claim. It would be ideal if, through contracts, educational institutions insist that their lecturers licensed their works under the Creative Commons.

    1. open journals

      Many up and coming researchers have published in open journals when before they would have struggled. Young scholars around the world might have found open access publishing a big helping hand in setting out on their professional journey.

    1. 5.7 million people rely on other nations for almost everything they eat. Just 0.9% of its land area of about 700 square kilometers was classified as agricultural in 2016

      Not so long ago, there were fewer than 3 million people on the island. Now the number is about double, making securing food increasingly crucial. To be ranked top in a food security index is no small accomplishment. The emphasis on understanding nutritional requirements and quality over quantity, including food waste reduction, will be of great significance.

    1. It is legally possible to add more restrictions than the original license in some cases, for example, releasing a derivative work under all rights reserved which incorporates source materials licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license. However, as digital citizens we should do our best to respect the original intent of the creator for releasing his or her works freely. In education, doing the right thing (sharing knowledge freely) is more important than doing things right (legal options for adding restrictions)

      An educational publication can thus be copyrighted with all rights reserved even if it contains CC-BY-SA licensed material. The understanding is that such a resource (considered a “derivative work”, an adaptation, and a remix) should rightly carry a Creative Commons license with the same License Elements.

      It's interesting that in terms of intellectual property, professors stand to gain more coverage through the popularity of the notes, and ultimately additional associated economic benefits due to the publicity. However, it may really be just about the money, and the competition between publishers, the old monopolies.

      This should greatly benefit educators in developing more interactive teaching platforms.

    2. Are there activities in the list that are part of your regular educational practice?
