MOOCs and copyright law

MOOCs and copyright law | Learning with MOOCs | Scoop.it

"Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are still pretty new but more and more universities, platform providers and publishers are beginning to create MOOCs to raise their profile and showcase high-quality materials. But there is a risk that reputations can take a serious hit if materials and data are being used incorrectly, or without permission."

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, September 30, 2013 3:05 PM

This brief addresses the situation in the USA, but raises issues that carry world-wide significance. For instance, who ownes the right to the material used in a MOOC, the provider or the developing university. With most MOOCs, it is the provider, although for traditional course material it is the professor or, if this has been contractually agreed, the institution. In this case one may argue that the institution and contributing professor full well know to what kind of legal arrangement they submit themselves. But what about the students who decide to take a MOOC. Are they aware of the fact that the MOOC provider owns the content generated by them in chats and assignments? The brief also addresses issues of fair use and issue that arise from the global nature of many MOOCs.  

 

It appears that MOOCs, in particular the commercial MOOC platform providers, are a new element in a carefully balanced system of rights and duties, a factor that has the potential of upsetting this system. Particularly if we welcome MOOCs as a valuable addition to the educational landscape, copyright issues need to be resolved in a way that honours the stakes of all contributors, not only those of the MOOC platforms. In a blog post in February this year (http://tiny.cc/e3m83w), I wondered whether MOOC providers should be likened to Internet access providers, which are oblivious to the content they provide,  or to content providers such as the Apple iTunes Store. It seems they aspire to be the latter, wishing to control the content provided. They should realise that this brings responsibilities in its wake, for instance to do a proper job. This was the topic of the February blog post. Now it appears that making equitable copyright provisions should be added to the list. @pbsloep

When my colleagues Anne Gilliland and Lisa Macklin and I released our first Coursera MOOC about copyright, called Copyright for Educators and Librarians, we were very pleased with the reaction.  Although our enrollment for that first MOOC was, at just over 10,000 participants, rather low by MOOC standards, we had a higher than normal percentage … Continue reading Copyright MOOCs, new and refreshed →

During course development the MOOC platform’s technicians highlighted the audio and video that was available through YouTube, and agreed to make the links inactive after a relatively short period. Of course, the files were still available on YouTube itself after that time, so it remained possible for students to return to them directly.

New MOOC Teaches Educators and Librarians About Copyright

New MOOC Teaches Educators and Librarians About Copyright | Learning with MOOCs | Scoop.it
For many of us in the information industry, copyright is the bane of our existence. We need more than a passing familiarity with key intellectual property and copyright issues, yet the environment is incredibly complex. And while copyright issues plague libraries and the teaching profession, most of us without formal legal training and degrees don't feel adequately prepared or comfortable responding to questions we face during the normal course of business. So the announcement that a team of three well-respected librarian-lawyers would be teaching a massive open online course (MOOC) through Coursera about copyright was greeted with a great deal of excitement from within the library community. Fortunately, the free course did not disappoint.

The O in MOOC | Scholarly Communications @ Duke

The O in MOOC | Scholarly Communications @ Duke | Learning with MOOCs | Scoop.it

By Kevin Smith, J.D. On April 11, 2013

 

I am generally a poor speller, but even I understand that there are two Os in MOOC.  So for added clarity, let me state up front that this post will focus on the first O — the one that stands for “open.”  But I want to get to the discussion about that O in a slightly round about (pun intended) way.
