Slides shown as part of a workshop on the use of "off-air recordings" in teaching. The session looked particularly at copyright exceptions for non-commercial, educational use of recordings for institutions in possession of an Education Recording Agency licence and at the Television and Radio Index for Learning and Teaching. TRILT is an excellent resource for UK-based educators.

    • Dr Chris Willmott Dept of Biochemistry, University of Leicester [email_address] Making the Most of Broadcast Media for Teaching Staff Development Workshop http://tinyurl.com/39zaw6q University of Leicester
    • Outline of session
      • The value of TV and Radio for teaching
      • What can I do (legally)?: ERA, copyright, etc
      • Examples from different disciplines - Bioscience - Oral history - Criminology
      • Knowing what’s on: Introduction to TRILT
      • Setting up TRILT alerts
      • Local services: BUFVC catch-up, changing format
      • Other databases, other sources
    • Central thesis
      • There is huge pedagogic value in the use of broadcast media
      • Video (and audio) clips : - familiar and engaging medium - to help scene-setting - as discussion starters - to convey factual information - clips more efficient than full programme
    • Obtaining programmes “ Titles are available for as little as £125...” ... or much less! E-mail: October 2008
    • Central thesis
      • There is huge pedagogic value in the use of broadcast media
      • Video (and audio) clips : - familiar and engaging medium - to help scene-setting - as discussion starters, and/or - to convey factual information - clips more efficient than full programme
      • Video and audio material can be obtained freely and legally for use in education, provided you know what you are looking for
    • Copyright
      • It is important that copyright is honoured
      • Educational Recording Agency (ERA)
      • University has an ERA Licence ( not ERA+)
      • ERA Licence allows for the use of “ off-air recordings ” provided your usage remains within terms of Licence
      • see www.era.org.uk for details
    • ERA Licence
      • ERA licensing scheme permits use of TV and radio broadcasts for non-commercial , educational purposes
      • Electronic communication of licensed recordings within an educational establishment (i.e. on campus)
      • The Licence specifically covers programmes on the five terrestrial television services and their digital sister channels, plus BBC radio and S4C
    • ERA Licence
      • Recorded material must include: - the date when the recording was made - the name of the broadcaster - the title of the programme - an exact phrase specifying usage
      • “ This recording is to be used only for educational and non-commercial purposes under the terms of the ERA Licence ”
      • Recordings can be made on behalf of other licensees (e.g. colleague at another university)
      • Recordings can be loaned to UK-based students
    • What is not allowed under ERA?
      • Standard ERA licence does not allow you to upload material to a VLE unless you can guarantee ALL users are ONLY able to access it on CAMPUS ( not from home, definitely not from outside UK)
      • Open University programmes, including co- productions, are specifically excluded as they operate a separate arrangement
      • You cannot materially alter a recording (e.g. adding different soundtrack)
      • Podcasts, downloads and “on demand” services are not broadcasts and are not covered by ERA
      • Despite what it says on the packaging, you MAY use purchased films etc in their original format for educational purposes
      • It is illegal to copy them (e.g. To select out just the clip you want)
      • You are not allowed to convert to a different format (e.g. WMV)
      • Remember : You CAN copy and convert off-air recordings, so even if you possess a DVD of a film it may be worth setting up a TRILT search for next broadcast
      What about DVDs I’ve bought?
    • A Child Against All Odds BBC1, November 14 th 2006 Example uses: (1) Documentary
    • Die Another Day ITV2, November 10 th 2006 Example uses: (2) Scene-setter

    • Holby City: “Better The Devil You Know” (BBC1, 6 th September 2006) This recording is to be used only for educational and non-commercial purposes under the terms of the ERA Licence Limitations of TRILT
    • Limitations of TRILT
      • The clip shown is an excellent vehicle for introducing discussion of both the ethical objections people might have regarding this operation, and the scientific difficulties that would be involved
      • The TRILT entry for this programme states: “ Abra returns to Holby and clashes with Ric over the treatment of a terminally ill patient, when Abra decides to offer the patient an illegal transplant. Chrissie thinks she’s cracked it with Sam. ”
      • How would someone else recognise the potential in this clip?
    • Specialist help: Bioethicsbytes
      • It is unrealistic to expect a general-purpose service to include sufficient annotation to satisfy all nuances of discipline-specific usage
      • We have developed Bioethicsbytes as an alternative means to share recommendations regarding bioethics-related footage
