The JISC-led Strategic Content Alliance has just released a new elearning module which covers the thorny topics of copyright and intellectual property rights. This is especially relevant for tutors creating learning resources that will be made available online (through EdShare perhaps) or presentations that will be captured using Panopto.

Naomi Korn, one of the authors of the resource, said: “The module has been developed to directly address those people in institutions who may be new to the issues around intellectual property rights and licensing or for those who want to learn more about specific issues.  We anticipate that people will want to customise, reuse and share the information so it is has been developed in an open source platform and the content licensed under Creative Commons licences, making the resource as flexible as possible.”

The module is divided into six learning objects with supporting case studies, video and animation:

  1. Introduction to IPR and Licensing
  2. Creative Commons Licences
  3. Orphan Works and Risk Management
  4. Digital Economy Act
  5. Accessing and Using Third Party Content
  6. Protecting and Managing Rights
