On Thursday, November 5, 2009, Creative Commons founding board member Lawrence Lessig addressed a general session at the EDUCAUSE 2009 Conference in Denver.

“It Is About Time: Getting Our Values Around Copyright Right.”

In this talk, Lawrence Lessig will review the progress of the “open access” movement in education. He will make a call for educators to finally resolve this issue in a way that enables the potential of technology for education.

I found this presentation so compelling and relevant that I wanted to share it with the UCT community.  I have downloaded it and am hosting it locally on Vula.  So you should not have to worry about bandwidth and long download times.  The file is about 200mb and the presentation lasts one hour.

Love to hear your comments regarding the video below.  If anyone is having trouble seeing the video please leave a comment and I will get in touch with you.
