Copyright and Fair Use

Copyright law in regards to education is not as clear cut as many of us would like. This can be frustrating for teachers and students when trying to put together dynamic projects and the 10 second rule while a good guideline, may not always be the best alternative.

Peter Jaszi out of American University has been working to put together new guidelines for this gray area that will hopefully help educators sort it all out. Until then there are some good websites out there that try to aid us when wrestling with this situation.

Tony Jongejan of Western Washington University gave an interesting presentation on the topic at NECC.

Some of his resources are below.
