Licensing Information

Here at the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (COERLL), we add Creative Commons licenses on all of the materials that we create for teaching and learning. These licenses indicate that the content is “open” and foster the respectful sharing of ideas. We encourage you to use open materials and to add Creative Commons licenses to materials you create, so that users of your work give you proper credit and understand what rights they do or do not have to reuse, modify, redistribute, or sell your content.

In the spirit of openness, the text of COERLL’s Heritage Spanish website is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 License and the content we create for the website has the same license. However, some of the outside content we list on the site is copyrighted because the editorial staff judged it to be a valuable resource for teaching Spanish as a heritage language.

When clicking on links that lead out of to other websites, be sure to check the licensing information and know what rights you have to modify, redistribute, reuse, or sell the content in those links.
