What does open sourcing curriculum actually look like?

But what does it mean exactly to make curriculum open source? Is it as simple as providing a link to download the resources I use to teach the class (such as Drupalize.me's Community Tools curriculum)? Do I need to decide between a particular open source license (GPL, MIT, etc) and create rules for fair use?

Maybe someone can point me to a prior discussion or article around this topic?

Thanks!

Start: 
2014-01-25 11:00 - 16:00 America/Los_Angeles

We're scheduling an extra special Drupal event this Saturday, January 25, 2014, and you're invited!

This is a mega event with four separate activities, including code sprints and expert Drupal mentoring. Join us for any or all of the following, including the Drupal Sprint Weekend: Los Angeles; having a GLADCamp.org website sprint; open lab hours for attendees of the module development boot camp; and a FREE video learning and mentoring workshop using Build a Module.com videos.

Agenda

For any changes to our agenda for the event, stay tuned to this meetup announcement or click the "Sign up" button at https://groups.drupal.org/node/399498#signup (or both!) to be notified when the agenda has been updated.

Drupal Sprint Weekend

The annual Global Drupal Sprint Weekend is upon us and anyone interested in learning more about Drupal core and how the Drupal software project is managed and developed will be guided and mentored in the Drupal Way.

We'll help you select tickets in the core issue queue at https://drupal.org/project/issues/drupal to work on so that together as a group we can move Drupal 8 closer to a release date. See https://groups.drupal.org/node/332998 for more details.

GLADCamp.org Code Sprint

Thanks to an amazing team and help from our design and development partners, the GLADCamp.org website is now up! Before we open user registrations and session submissions, the website needs help from volunteers in our community.

We'll be updating the GLADCamp.org website, including descriptions of the non-profit summit and venue and hotel information, and cataloging any remaining bugs in the issue queue at https://drupal.org/project/issues/gladcamp  

Open Lab Hours for the Module Development Boot Camp

This weekend is the last best chance for attendees of the Module Development Boot Camp to participate in open lab hours at Droplabs. The boot camp instructors will be on hand to help boot camp attendees finish their class projects and get them published to Drupal.org.

FREE video learning and mentoring with Build a Module.com videos

That's right, we're also doing a mentored Drupal training! If you're interested in learning more about Drupal, site building, theming, module development, change management, or anything else, come with your laptop or tablet and a pair of headphones. The staff at Droplabs will set you up with a day pass to Build a Module.com and help create a video playlist for you to gently climb the Drupal learning curve at your own pace.
