license

Am I correct that the only way I can post GeoGebra applets on my own Web site is to make them available to commercial use? The reason I ask is that the only way to post something on my site is first to go through GeoGebraTube. But GeoGebraTube requires me to agree to a license that allows commercial use. I would like a way to post things on GGT which limits re-use to non-commercial users. Is there a way to do that? And if not, is there a way to keep my GGT posts private? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

Business use not your applet will benefit, if you share it,( and if necessary, some people will improve it without commercial thought) : there will not be more commercial interest to copy, since it is already available for free!

Otherwise, business people are able to find the same idea as us... without us.


But if we are forced to use HTML5, then the business will do better with Java...

GeoGebraTube now allows you to set materials to "public", "shared" or "private" which gives you a lot of flexibility to share your materials e.g. only with your students. We are using the Creative Commons - Attribution - Share Alike License because it is widely used and compatible with many other sharing platforms (e.g. Wikipedia). The Share Alike clause makes sure that when someone builds on your materials, they have to share it with the world under the same license as well - no matter if they are an individual user or a company - and we think that's a great way to live the sharing idea of GeoGebraTube.


Concerning HTML5: GeoGebra's Java and HTML5 versions have the same codebase, so they really are the same software. However, the HTML5 version works on many more devices while the Java plugin is disappearing and getting harder to use in all browsers. Thus, the future is clearly HTML5 and not plugins. If you should experience any problems with one of your worksheets, you can force it to use Java for the moment. Please let us know when you have problems, so we can try to fix them.


The goal is to make sure that all your nice worksheets continue to be available and work on all devices in the future as well. Both our license and HTML5 contribute to that.


Best wishes,

In other words, it is not possible to use the Creative Commons Attribution - Share Alike-Noncommercial License on GeoGebra Tube. Why is that?

Hello Markus,

When I did not agree with the changes, I did it know (regrettably, with some vehemence). :?


It is therefore normal that I do the opposite approach when I am pleased with the new improvements in GeoGebraTube, which brings it closer to standards used on many sharing platforms, like Wikispaces that I use regularly.


It will be easier for me to create virtual classes where I can work in a confident way with my students. :D


Thanks again.

Sincerely,

LPH

lol


challenge: create an applet in HTML5 with the same timeliness as:


http://tube.geogebra.org/ma...


in Java of course...

...

"problems"...??? !!! lol.


I hope that GeoGebra will still work with Java,

GGT will share the GGB files... and will show the simple applets...in HTML5.
