Copyright Guide for Blended Learning

Copyright should be taken very seriously, because the copyright holders take it seriously.  In 2008, a group of publishers sued Georgia State University for copyright infringement.  While the majority of the claims were denied, it still reflects the reality: publishers do care what materials are placed into presentations and on websites like Moodle.

Much of the materials available to guide us through Fair Use is devoted to longer-standing forms of copyright and fair use, namely things like e-reserve readings in course software packages (Moodle) and inclusion in printed materials.  Very little has been explored in regards to inclusion in blended learning packages.  However, much can be extrapolated from the Four Factors of Fair Use in Education.

If you are developing blended learning materials for your winter term classes and you have copyright questions, you can contact Christine Aden in the library for more assistance OR you can check out one of these helpful websites for evaluating whether the materials you are using fall under fair use in education.
