EdTech: Exploring ownership, copyright and IPR


Copyright and other intellectual property rights set up legal restrictions on the conditions of use of publications, images, designs and any other works created by an identifiable author. This module looks at the implications of copyright for teaching and learning. It forms a pair with the module Using Creative Commons.


The module shows you how to identify ownership rights and their implications for pedagogical practice.


After completing the module, you will be able to:
- Identify different forms of rights protection around content
- Review and change your current practice to comply with rights and ownership.
