Copyright Open Educational Resource for University Instructors and Staff [New]

Copyright considerations are relevant to many university activities in Canada, both for creators and users of copyright-protected material. This series provides university employees with a general overview of copyright through seven short, self-directed, bilingual instructional modules. Each module contains a short video, usually between 4 and 6 minutes in length, and a quiz. The webpage text that follows the video is a transcript of the narration from the corresponding video for the module. The quizzes at the end of each module are learning tools; results are not monitored or retained. These modules are meant to supplement rather than replace the resources provided by your employer. For information about specific scenarios, consult your own institution’s copyright guidelines and policies, and, if necessary, seek legal advice. Separately, the Opening Up Copyright instructional modules, based at the University of Alberta, provide more in-depth copyright information on a range of topics, for a broader audience. If you are considering using this course on your campus, ideas for implementation are available in the implementation guide… You can download all of the source files for the course, including images, transcripts, audio and video files, and captions in University of Calgary’s digital collections. All videos can also be watched on CARL’s YouTube channel.

Includes: modules, videos, quizzes
