Applying Recent Copyright Court Decisions to Distance Ed
Publication Date: Magna Online Seminars, 2012
If you teach online courses—or support, supervise, or set policy for those who do—you need to understand what resources can be used legally in distance education and how to use them. Find out what you need to know in Applying Recent Copyright Court Decisions to Distance Ed, a Magna Online Seminar on CD with presenter Linda Enghagen, J.D. It’s important to consider fair use, transformative uses, and copyright compliance early on when designing online courses. Doing so lets you avoid legal complications and the need to revise courses. Although you don’t need to be a lawyer in order to develop a working knowledge of best practices in fair use, your presenter is an attorney and a professor with more than 20 years’ experience in distance education. The author of two books, numerous scholarly articles, and brochures on copyright and related issues, Enghagen is an award-winning educator. You'll learn the legal ins and outs of using the materials most commonly employed in online courses. Prepare yourself to face the legalities of distance education today.
