Exploring the Creative Commons Search Engine

Creative Commons licensed resources are resources in which an artist shares media specifically for reuse with some rights reserved. The Creative Commons organization created a metasearch engine, an engine that queries third party search engines to populate results, to help users locate a range of different creative commons resources. Searching via the Creative Commons metasearch engine provides users with the ability to search audio, images, and video using Google, Flickr, Open Clip Art Library, Google Images, YouTube, SoundCloud, Wikimedia Commons, and other engines.

Creative Commons In Action: Elementary students create a PowerPoint presentation to share their research. Students use the Creative Commons search to locate images to place in their PowerPoint presentation.

Digital Learning Platform: Creative Commons metasearch engine serves as a best structure to assist during research and the creation of authentic tasks and products.
