I am currently putting together a course (all the resources will be open) intended to enable open educators, formal, informal, university and school, to navigate the complexities of copyright law and licensing on educational resources.
There is so much that one could include but I’ve pared it down to ten units that I have listed below. I am looking for comments and criticisms on the list.
If you are a non lawyer who must grapple with copyright law to make decisions about educational resources then what would you want to find out about?
The 12 topics (modules?) are:
1.what is copyright?
5.copyright and education
6.exceptions for teaching and learning
8.using open educational resources in education
9.choosing and using open licences for educational resources
10. using materials under exceptions in open educational resources
11. badly broken (click wrap licences, DRM’s, TPM’s, and anti-circumvention provisions)
12. the knowledge commons
