Free Creative Commons Digital Resources for Instructional Designers

Updated: Dec 15, 2022

Creative Commons (CC) is an open license that offers a great many digital resources to instructional designers and teachers. Here are a few of my favorite places on the web to get CC digital photos, videos, and music.

For those new to the CC idea, let me quickly define it: Creative Commons (CC) is a type of copyright that means you are able to reuse the content under varying restrictions and open-use depending on which license was selected by the content creator. You always have to give at least credit/attribution to the original author/designer. Learn more here:

Closely linked to CC are Open Educational Resources (OERS), but not to be confused with it. CC is a license for OERs and other digital resources. OER is the actual digital learning object or digital resource itself. Open Educational Resources (OERs) are eResources, eBooks, and digital learning objects that teachers can use in non-profit institutions without concerns for copyright, so long as credit/attribution is given back to the original author/designer.
