      • Use of copyrighted work may be allowable under fair use when used in an educational environment
      • Do not put copyrighted work on the Web because those outside of an educational environment may access it
      • Use search engines designed to help you find materials in the public domain and those for which creators have given up some of their copyrights (resources section)
    • Using Creative Commons
      • Look for licensed works to use in your instruction (Creative Commons has a search feature that will assist you)
      • License your own work using Creative Commons so that other instructors can benefit from your work
      • Encourage your students to license their own Intellectual Property
