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 Tues 10 & Wed 11 Sep 2013
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 as we would like to share the results of our collective ideas for discussion. If you are planning to request certification for participation, please make sure that you meet the participation requirements and register your designated blog posts indicated within the E-Activities for each session.
Overview of Session 3 on copyright
You will find links to Session 3 from the course dashboard. 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 quizes 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 from previous participants) and a reflective discussion activity.
Have a great day!
With kind regards
