Copyright considerations for online courses

How does copyright law differ for distance learning and traditional face-to-face courses? What permissions do you need to share or include someone else's content in your online course? Does copyright law have an exception for emergencies? Who owns the copyright in the works you create?

Join University Libraries’ Copyright Services for a presentation on the basics of copyright for online instruction on August 11 at 9 a.m. This presentation will cover copyright exceptions for online teaching, an introduction to using openly licensed content and copyright best practices for transitioning from a face-to-face to online course.

If you require an accommodation such as live captioning or interpretation to participate in this event, please contact as soon as possible. Requests made by August 4 will generally allow us to provide seamless access, but the university will make every effort to meet requests made after this date. A captioned recording of this program will be available within 7-10 business days following the event posted to the University Libraries website.
