Online platforms have become the base of operation for instruction for both face-to-face classes and distance education; yet current copyright law does not provide direct guidance on what you can legally upload into your CMS. In this workshop, lawyer and librarian Gretchen McCord will break down the elements of course management system (CMS) use and help you assess risk and analyze copyright law to ensure your CMS is within copyright regulations. She will illuminate facets of copyright law that will help you make informed decisions.
You will learn:
•    How to apply fair use and other copyright exceptions to your decision making
•    How to make sound analogies from court decisions on brick-and-mortar cases
•    How to assess risk when using copyright-protected content
