Yes. Generally these licences will permit you to copy and share the material, including access through Blackboard. However you need to observe any terms and conditions attached to the licence. For example, Creative Commons licences may have the following conditions:
- Attribution (BY) - any use must attribute the creator of the material
- Non-commercial use (NC) - material cannot be used for commercial purposes
- No derivative works (ND) - you cannot create a derivative work from the material, e.g. by adapting or modifying it
- Share-alike (SA) - if you do create a derivative work, you must attach a similar "SA" licence to the new work.
