Applying copyright in online learning environments
Dec 3 1:30 pm - 3 pm

Workshop
301, Hale Library


In this online workshop, lawyer and librarian Gretchen McCord will break down the elements of course management system (CMS) use and help you assess risk and analyze copyright law to ensure your CMS is within copyright regulations. 

Online platforms have become the base of operation for instruction for both face-to-face classes and distance education; yet current copyright law does not provide direct guidance on what you can legally upload into your CMS. The situation can be compounded by aggressive copyright holders who may restrict uses that are in fact within your rights as an educator.

You will learn: 

how to apply fair use and other copyright exceptions to your decision making;how to make sound analogies from court decisions on brick-and-mortar cases;how to assess risk when using copyright-protected content.
