An Interview with Ahrash Bissell of the Creative Commons

To try to get to the heart of the Creative Commons movement, we were fortunate to be able to interview Ahrash N. Bissell, Ph.D., the Executive Director of ccLearn (the educational division within the Creative Commons).
Dr. Bissell previously served as the Assistant Director of the Academic Resource Center at Duke University after spending time as a Research Associate in the Department of Biology at the school. Dr. Bissell also worked on data-sharing issues for interdisciplinary research and served a lead adviser for a program to bring science education opportunities to underprivileged middle-school kids.
Open Education Search Though Dr. Bissell began his work with the Creative Commons just last summer, he is already immersed in a variety of projects. As to ccLearn, Bissell notes that his branch of the commons organization seeks to "educate people about copyright" as well as "advocate for open education and the adoption of open educational resources. As a means to accomplish those ends, Dr. Bissell indicates that ccLearn is also is concerned with "improving the interoperability of present and future resources in a globally interconnected world."
Next up we take the time to interview Dr. Ahrash Bissell of the Creative Commons.
