This free IPR course introduces intellectual property rights (IPR), Creative Commons and how to create learning objects.
The free online Intellectual Property Rights for Educational Environments course is a HEFCE funded, and Higher Education Academy (HEA)/JISC managed, project created to introduce and build awareness of aspects of intellectual property rights and copyright.
The intended audience is primarily people in higher education designing online learning resources. These course materials are also appropriate for academics working in HE staff development.
The course is divided into three units each comprising a number of sessions. Each element of the course can either be used independently or as a part of a complete learning experience.
While the course primarily addresses IPR in the UK, the course materials can be adapted and re-used to represent IPR issues in non-UK countries.
