Eventually teachers will follow syllabus of different boards. To put the lectures in right context they might need to refer different text books.
What are the permissions required for this purpose?
Who will take the permission?
How these permissions can be managed?

If the teacher's are associated with schools, who will agree to the CC licensing terms? At these point of time I don't have clarity if the teacher have any mention around these in Employment T&C.
 
We need to deliberate the structure who will be able to upload the contents under suitable CC license.
Can any teacher upload the content?
Can we upload the content on behalf of the schools/ teacher?
What are the documents needed for the same?
Is there matter that we can use form CC or any other source?
Can you maintain these documents online? Maintaining hardcopies will very difficult.
 
Please share your thoughts.

Licensing Considerations

We are considering Creative Commons license for the video lectures
 
Primarily considering two options
  • CC BY SA NC
  • CC BY SA
Few things I am not very sure and making the forum open for discussion
  1. 1. For CC BY SA can the original contribution be used commercially by someone else who is not the creator. e.g. Can an Internet cafe operator download and distribute the content at a service cost
  2. I feel there should be enough incentive of partners to provide value added services around the content. I doubt if we specify CC BY SA NC (Non-Commercial) we will limit that ability. Please let me know your thoughts.
  3. Also suggest what would the best way position the above with different Managing Committee (MC) of schools.
