Copyright basics

Length: 10:46

This video is an introduction to the basic elements of copyright law in Canada, discussing the types of materials protected by copyright, the length of copyright protection and the rights of both copyright owners and users of copyright protected materials. This video will be useful for faculty, staff and students who are unfamiliar with copyright.

 

Teaching and copyright: Part 1

Length: 9:38

This video is an in-depth look at finding and sharing less copyright-restricted materials for use in courses, both in-person and online (i.e. through Canvas), including Creative Commons and Library licenses, public domain material, and the use of linking. This video assumes the viewer has a basic understanding of copyright, and will be most useful for faculty and staff responsible for developing courses and teaching students. While aimed at instructors, the sources described in this video will also be useful for graduate students writing theses, as the more openly-licensed and copyright-free materials can also be reproduced in a thesis.

 

Teaching and copyright: Part 2

Length: 8:30

This video is an in-depth look at the fair dealing and educational institution exceptions, two exceptions in the Copyright Act that can help instructors use copyright-protected materials in courses, both in-person and online (i.e. through Canvas). This video assumes the viewer has a basic understanding of copyright, and will be most useful for faculty and staff responsible for developing courses and teaching students. Students creating in-class presentations can also use the exceptions available to instructors.
