Jul-Aug: Copyright for Educators & Librarians (Duke University via Coursera)

4 week course starting July 21st

Copyright has always been a bit of a puzzle for teachers and librarians.  It seems like a mysterious set of rules, and the news media occasionally reports on dire penalties imposed for copyright infringement.  However, the law was designed to empower teachers and libraries, with both specific and general exceptions that facilitate education.  Our goal in this course is to begin to demystify the law and help educators and librarians do their jobs more effectively.
