Open content licensing for educators/Session 3

Jump to: navigation, search

What can educators legally copy in an online world?

Learning pathway: Copyright: Your educational right to copy

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 WEnotes, twitter or Google+ using the #OCL4Ed tag as you work through and reflect on the materials. We conclude with a case study (with feedback to the core questions) and a reflective discussion activity.
