Want to brush up on your copyright? Coursera is offering a free web course on Copyright for Educators & Librarians. The course is taught by faculty members from Duke University, Emory University and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Here’s the course description:
Fear and uncertainty about copyright law often plagues educators and sometimes prevents creative teaching. This course is a professional development opportunity designed to provide a basic introduction to US copyright law and to empower teachers and librarians at all grade levels. Course participants will discover that the law is designed to help educators and librarians.
Coursera is an education platform that partners with top universities and organizations worldwide, to offer courses online for anyone to take, for free.
Thanks to my colleague, Mary Jo Koranda, for the tip.
