Copyright Guidance for Transitioning Your Course Online
Copyright Guidance for Transitioning an In-Person Course Online
Pedagogical and technical issues may make the shift from in-person to online teaching a challenge but copyright concerns should not be a significant barrier!
Key points to remember:
- Most of the legal issues are the same in both contexts. (online and in class)
- If it was okay to do in class, it is often okay to do online – especially when your online access is limited to the same enrolled students.
- You can continue to apply the Fair Dealing Guidelines.
