Posting on Ecollege
According to the Four Factors of Fair Use, faculty members are allowed to post articles and sections of copyrighted materials (such as books, movies, audio files, etc.) on ecollege to use share in a course. The reason this is allowed, is because once the course is completed, students are no longer allowed to access the content in that course, protecting the material from copyright infringement. Attachments in ecollege should be accompanied by the Copyright Notice that is provided as a downloadable PDF below.
If you send out copyrighted materials via email to your students, please also attach the Copyright Notice that is provided as a downloadable PDF below.
In a nutshell: please attach this form to what you are sharing with your course or students, so you are copyright compliant. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Liesl.
