[excerpt from the blog post]

   - "The 4.0 versioning process has been a truly collaborative effort
   between the brilliant and dedicated network of legal and public
   licensing experts
<http://wiki.creativecommons.org/CC_Affiliate_Network>and the active,
vocal open
   community <http://wiki.creativecommons.org/4.0/#Process>. The 4.0
   licenses, the public license development undertaking, and the Creative
   Commons organization are stronger because of the steadfast commitment of
   all participants."

The CC Education team will host webinars on what the 4.0 licenses mean for
open education. I will advertise webinar dates / times on these lists.
Many thanks to so many of you who contributed to the building of these
updated legal tools!  Together we can help teachers and learners around the
world share what they create, reuse others' educational resources and data,
and adjust learning spaces to increase access, reduce costs and improve

Warmest regards,
