  • I think that you should cover e-learning issues and copyright generally – the CLA licence would be one part of that. But you might also cover other aspects of copyright content inclusion on VLEs 9e.g. other strategies for third party use of content such as using items from databases under licences; direct permissions issues etc; but you might also mention the other issues of VLE content such as copyright/rights in performance issues in using audio/visual etc content). Is that clear enough.
  • Copyright and e-learning – primarily today I will be covering copyright and the VLE.E-learning is a broader term of related technologies. But in practice for most of us we are talking about content being added to or linked from the VLE
  • Discuss in pairs – what are the key issues in your own institution?
  • The need to report in the first instance! We manage the service and do not designate staff as being able to scan – it has to go via the Library
  • Linking caused problems as staff don’t realise you cant copy and paste links from subscription resourcesDOIsMention Talis Aspire making linking to resources easier.
  • Often not practical to use CLA Licence for images
  • Photo: Professor Michael Oakeshott, 1964 during the making of a BBC documentary
  • - LSE has a lot of international staff – US staff and fair use can be a problem–Staff believe they can do what they like with their own publications and with those they are sent by colleagues– Misconception about material on the web - free to view vs free to copy, use and adaptVLE - surely we can share material for educational use?

    17. 17. Managing the CLA Licence • LSE provide a central scanning and digitisation service (epack service) • All requests processed by the Library – no scanning undertaken in departments or by staff • In-house scanning following checks for compliance • Process managed currently using Packtracker which produces CLA report • Also plan to deal with digital copy requests centrally to ensure accuracy of record keeping • Fast efficient service, with scans kept on secure server and renewed annually
    18. 18. The CLA Licence – commons queries • Need to report scanned material but not photocopies • Discrepancy between what can be scanning / photocopying repertoire • Need to link to e-journals • Can now use digital originals but not advertising this to staff! • US publisher causing significant issue and potentially high cost • Title search errors causing concern
    19. 19.

    22. 22. Lecture recording • Installed in most large LSE lecture theatres • Opt-in basis for lecturers but very popular with students • Issues of third party content being shown and ‘copied’ • Performance rights of lecturer – content not stored beyond academic year • Release forms for external speakers also to cover third party content Photos from LSE Library on Flickr: no known copyright restrictions
    23. 23. MOOCs and copyright • MOOCs (Massive open online courses) present challenges in terms of sourcing content • Many do not rely on traditional published resources but use open content or lecturers own material • Use of open access readings • Use of OERs • Some publishers working with MOOC platforms e.g. Coursera Just browsing by Wilson Alfonso licensed under Creative Commons
    24. 24. Common queries and misconceptions • International staff • Staff and their own publications • Use of images in teaching • Student work and permission • The VLE as a ‘private network’ • You Tube and on demand TV queries
    25. 25. Light on the horizon? • OER movement and Creative Commons • Open access movement raised awareness of copyright amongst staff • Some movement on educational copying following Hargreaves? • But technology also creates new challenges everyday!
