  • • Literary works, dramatic works, musical works, artistic works, sound recordings separate to the actual music or story, films for any genre or format, communication works including radio and television broadcasts and internet webcasts, typographical arrangements of published editions
  • Some people mistakenly believe that they can use any material as long as they properly give the author credit. Not true. Giving credit and fair use are completely separate concepts. Either you have the right to use another author's material under the fair use rule or you don't. The fact that you attribute the material to the other author doesn't change that.
  • Youtube statistics for 2012 ...
    • Do you know that “500 years of YouTube video” are watched on Facebook every single day?
    60 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. This number was only “48 hours” a couple of months ago.
    Over 4 billion YouTube videos are viewed a day up from 3 billion so the new channel based layout seem to be doing well for YouTube.
    Over 4 billion hours of video are watched each month on YouTube.
  • You also hereby grant each user of the Service a non-exclusive license to access your Content through the Service, and to use, reproduce, distribute, display and perform such Content as permitted through the functionality of the Service and under these Terms of Service. ~~
    This clearly states that the owner of the video grants you a limited license to embed the video simply by leaving the embed option on (which is part of the functionality of the youTube Service).
  • Have been using YT in my classroom for a number of years. This is the general approach I use to using YT to host videos. Of course with google apps for ed, each student has a yt account associated with their google apps account here at school.
  • Please note that is not a search engine, but rather offers convenient access to search services provided by other independent organizations. CC has no control over the results that are returned. Do not assume that the results displayed in this search portal are under a CC license. You should always verify that the work is actually under a CC license by following the link. Since there is no registration to use a CC license, CC has no way to determine what has and hasn't been placed under the terms of a CC license. If you are in doubt you should contact the copyright holder directly, or try to contact the site where you found the content.
  • • Digital literacy skills - just as important for students to be proficient with this as they are with basic writing / reading skills
    We must be teaching this.

  • Copyright & eLearning

    1. 1. Copyright and eLearning Dave Beehre
    2. 2. QR codes and Augmented Reality technology within the classroom • In New Zealand, copyright is an automatic right, which doesn’t need to be registered by the owner, it exists as soon as something is created, performed or published, as long as the work is original, and comes under one of the eight categories
    3. 3. What is Fair Use? • In some situations, you may make limited use of another’s copyrighted work without asking permission or infringing on the original copyright. This is called “fair use”
    4. 4. Why fair use is problematic • I personally discourage my students from applying “fair use” when using online digital media as it can be quite problematic from a legal perspective.
    5. 5. What about YouTube? • Unless explicitly stated all Youtube videos are under copyright. Unless the video is licensed for reuse under a creative commons license, the videos may not be downloaded for use in the classroom, unless the educational exemptions of the NZ Copyright Act apply. • If you want to use a Youtube video in the classroom for teaching purposes, stream it directly from Youtube when required. • Encourage students not to upload to Youtube unless they are 100% sure they own the rights to the content.
    6. 6. What about YouTube? What about YouTube? • Can I embed or share links to youtube videos on my blog, wiki, google site etc without violating copyright? Short answer, yes. This issue is addressed in YouTube’s TOS. • Understanding youtube and digital citizenship An excellent series produced by Google ( nine lessons complete with teacher guide and slides) Lesson 9 deals with copyright. Well worth sharing with your class.
    7. 7. YouTube flowchart
    8. 8. • Mobile devices make it very easy to share videos straight to a class youtube account. Use the video editor in youtube to edit videos • Set privacy setting to “private” videos are locked and can only be viewed by the person who the video is shared with. Videos cannot be found with a search and aren’t viewable on the host channel • Use advanced settings to “turn off” commenting etc • Students can link to their video via their eportfolio Using Youtube to host media Using Youtube to host media
    9. 9. • Youtube is so much more than a website to watch and share videos • By utilising Youtube’s powerful editing features, it is possible for students to create their own original original media and showcase their learning in new and exciting ways. • Using Youtube as an interactive presentation tool Using Youtube as a learning tool Using Youtube as a learning tool
    10. 10. What is creative commons ? • An excellent video ( 5 minutes ) explaining creative commons, worth sharing with your class • Learn more about free Open Education Resources here
    11. 11. Search for CC content • Search for media using portal • Search for media using • Don’t assume results are under a CC license, verify by following link. If in doubt contact copyright holder directly. • A common complaint from my students is that they can’t find what they are looking for, choice is limited using CC search • Find out about using CC licences in your school at WeCreate
    12. 12. Practical advice for teachers • Student example of book trailer created using own artwork, CC images and royalty free music • Encourage students to find all media using CC portal • Encourage your students to create their own original digital content (images / music / video etc) in their online presentations • Teach students how to attribute sources correctly QuickTime™ and a decompressor are needed to see this picture.
