The purpose of this E-Activity is to demonstrate the application of your knowledge of copyright by developing two MCQ questions based on an educational context you describe in your own country. The activity is inspired by the quotation attributed to Yogi Bhajan:"“If you want to learn something, read about it. If you want to understand something, write about it. If you want to master something, teach it."

  1. Review the stimulus resource links above and search for the web for additional resources which can assist you in achieving the learning outcome actions for this Activity.
  2. Think about a practical educational situation, for example, a teacher preparing an online course or learner completing an assignment which focuses on two or more aspects of copyright in a digital world.
  3. Does your proposed copyright situation relate to two or more of: scope, ownership, rights, exceptions or transfer of rights?
  4. Consider the implications of your own national copyright act.
  5. Consider possible questions relating to this copyright situation which would demonstrate the application of your knowledge of copyright.

Learning outcome actions

  1. Prepare and publish a blog post containing two multiple choice questions based on a copyright situation (i.e. a mini scenario). You may use the same copyright situation sketch for both MCQs. In your blog post you should:
    • State the context including the country and intended audience for the MCQs.
    • Describe the copyright situation (no more than 200 words) where possible including links to web sites illustrating the real artefacts referenced in your copyright example without breach of your own copyright act.
    • Develop two MCQs based on the mini copyright situation you describe. Your MCQs must:
      • Specify the correct answer for example: ANSWER: <text for correct answer alternative>
      • Specify the distractors, for example: DISTRACTOR: <text for incorrect alternative>
      • Provide formative feedback for all alternatives, that is feedback for correct and incorrect answers. You must specify the reasons why and option is correct or incorrect.
  2. Visit and read the blog posts from fellow students for this Activity and provide feedback by commenting two student posts.
  3. Pay your learning forward. Where possible, please consider using a Creative Commons Attribution or Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike license for your blog posts. This would enable us to reuse the questions you develop to provide more case study examples for future OCL4Ed students. (In the absence of clearly licensing your post with these licenses, we will not be able to legally use your contibutions for future courses.)
