Copyright in E-learning- What You Need to Know
National - Essential Series
Tue 4 Feb 2014, 12:00pm to 1:00pm AEDT
With such easy access these days to a wealth of online material, it’s difficult to determine whether you’re breaching copyright laws when you use them and what you can legally use without paying.
This webinar will help you to determine whether a digital resource is indeed free and how to avoid legal action. You will explore the use of resources such as online music, Youtube, Teachertube, podcasts, text, images, content management systems and digital content repositories. You will also look at the legal limitations around format shifting rights and receive pointers to handy websites where you can access fee-free and low-cost resources.
By the end of this workshop, participants will have the knowledge and skills to:
- recognise the variety of copyright licence types relevant to digital materials
- identify the licensing requirements of a variety of online resources
- understand the possible penalties for copyright infringement with digital materials
- understand the legal limitations of format-shifting rights, and
- access fee-free and low-cost digital resources
