Information Overload Technologies can help learners take control of and manage their own learning. Johnson and Liber (2008) noted that in using technology to shift the locus of control over learning to the learner, the ways in which learners exercise that control becomes an important educational issue. Tools such as RSS feeds, wikis, social bookmarking, and blogs potentially set up an environment that allows learners to: set their own learning goals manage their learning; managing both content and process communicate with others in the process of learning …and thereby achieve their learning goals.

Fair Use Law To ensure a balance of the rights of copyright owners and the public interest, the law allows you to use copyrighted works without permission — regardless of medium — when evaluation of the circumstances suggests the use is fair. Factors to consider: Purpose and character: If your use is for teaching at a nonprofit educational institution, this is a factor favoring fair use. The scale tips further in favor of fair use if access is restricted to your students. Nature of copyrighted work: Is the work fact-based, published, or out-of-print? These factors weigh in favor of fair use. Amount used: Using a small portion of a whole work would weigh toward fairness. But sometimes it may be fair to use an entire work (such as an image) if it is needed for your instructional purpose. Market effect: A use is more likely to be fair if it does not harm the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. But if it does, this could weigh more heavily against fair use than the other factors.
