Copyright Course

Duke University, Emory University and  The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are offering a free, on-demand course titled, "Copyright for Educators & Librarians," through Coursera,  You may pay for a certificate if you wish after completing the course. the course is hosted by:

Kevin Smith, M.L.S., J.D., Director, Copyright and Scholarly Communication at Duke University Libraries
Lisa A. Macklin, J.D.,M.L.S., Director, Scholarly Communications Office Robert W. Woodruff Library, Emory University
Anne Gilliland, JD, MLS, Scholarly Communications Officer, University Libraries, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

This is a great opportunity to learn about copyright and how to it pertains to teaching and learning. The course consists of four main sections:

  • A Framework for Thinking About Copyright
  • Owning Rights
  • Specific Exceptions for Teachers and Librarians
  • Understanding and Using Fair Use
This is a very informative and helpful course for anyone in the education or library realms. I can say from personal experience that this course has bolstered my understanding of copyright, the exceptions to copyright and how to manage the use of works in other projects. I recommend this course to anyone.
