In the beginning ...

Two important things I would start the tutorial with

(1) The definition of copyright. There is a lot of confusion on exactly what is copyright.

(2) The difference between copyright and other intellectual property (patents and trademarks). Just quickly glancing at the comments for the current L4C I noticed some confusion on that issue.

The root of this confusion might be use of the term "intellectual property". Avoid it and focus on copyright. Refer to the others, if you must, separately as "patents", "trademarks", "trade secrets", etc..

Sharing is good. Emphasis on the benefits of sharing in education and how to do it right and most efficiently.

Hi Kim, Thanks for comments. do you mean "Sharing instead of Learning about Copyrights", so title of the tutorials or was this a general comment? Thanks, Patricia

Hi Patricia. I meant the tone of the tutorials (not only the titles) should encourage sharing ("sharing is good" and a more efficient way of developing quality learning resources), and how to do it right (e.g. with libre Creative Commons licenses such as CC-BY or CC-BY-SA)* - i.e. careful not to arouse too much of the fear normally associated with the law and copyright.
