Instructions for Session 3 - Copyright: Your educational rights to copy

You should follow the OCL4Ed course according to your own time zone. These instructions are for your Thursday 26 & Friday 27 June 2014

There is something very special about OCL4Ed courses. Rich discussions and interactions from around the world, and we've only just started our open licensing journey! Thank you for your contributions and open reflections so far.

If you have just joined us or you have fallen a little behind with Sessions 1 and 2. There is more than enough time to catch up and we provide a few quicklinks below you can review to catch up. Remember you only need to spend about 1 - 1.5 hours per session (over the two working days allocated for each session).

A gentle reminder: If you haven't had a chance yet, please complete the Fair and reasonable practice survey. To date, we have recorded a 30% response rate.

Overview of Session 3 on copyright

You will find links to Session 3 from the learning console in the course schedule section or you can go directly to the copyright learning pathway in the courseware section of the web site. During Session 3 we explore the fundamentals of copyright including:

  • the history,
  • what copyright protects,
  • who owns your copyright, and
  • how copyright works in an international context.

This is pre-requisite knowledge to understanding your rights and how open content licensing works. There are a few taster quizzes embedded in the course materials and we invite you to share your thoughts on twitter, WEnotes or Google+ using the #OCL4Ed tag as you work through and reflect on the materials. We conclude with an interactive case study (evaluated as one of the best features of OCL4Ed by previous participants) and a reflective discussion activity.

Have a great day!

With kind regards
Wayne Mackintosh
