Jane Park | As a Project Manager for Creative Commons, Jane manages the School of Open, a collaboration with the Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU). A volunteer community-driven project, the School of Open offers free, online courses on the meaning and impact of “openness” in the digital age and its benefit to creative endeavors, education, research, and beyond. Participants learn how to use free technology and tools, such as Creative Commons licenses, to achieve their goals. Jane also helps creators, institutions, and companies consider and adopt CC tools, while cultivating stories that exhibit the social and commercial value of CC licenses to different communities.

Hey Eric -- that's a good point about GitHub.
I was thinking that if Coursefork is about creating and hosting content, then options for licensing that content could be included, eg. via an integrated license chooser. We provide support (somewhat outdated) for that at http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Web_Integration. This would also encourage the open education community to make use of Coursefork, as OER creators and users are all about the content licensing -- and prefer that process to be made easy for them. Especially if educators are a potential audience of yours.
Over at School of Open (http://schoolofopen.org), our volunteer course organizers use whatever tools they find the most useful for their specific course. This could be a WP site, a Wikipedia page, or the P2PU UX. I could imagine Coursefork also being a potential tool for them, but as you can see we're all about "open" and would want the ability to clearly indicate the CC BY-SA (or more liberal content license) license on the course to encourage others reuse and remix of it.
Hi Eric -- will CC license options for content/courses be supported?
