Copyright Checklist for Virtual/Online Classrooms
- Have you included proper attribution and full citation for short (no more than a few sentences) quotations?
- Have you referenced sources of information (even if you have not used a direct quote)?
- Copyright protected works may be supplied to students in digital formats for the purposes of education and instruction. Materials may be converted to digital formats for the purposes of instruction. Works must be cited and students must be instructed not to further distribute the materials and to destroy the materials within 30 days of the completion of the course. Teachers may retain a single copy of course materials following a course. Some stipulations apply. Have you read the conditions of use statement on the websites that you link to? Note: Linking to other sites is an accepted and common online practice; however, Web etiquette suggests identifying the source of deep linked articles, possibly by providing a link to the mainpage of a site.
- Do you have written permission from the website owner to include any content from their site within your course?
- Have you remembered to keep a copy of your permission letters?
