I'm collaborating with some fantastic colleagues (hat tips to  @erin_keefe  and Lily Philips - Instructional Designers) to create an AMAZING resource we'll be sharing with the community, a Quality Canvas Course Checklist (link coming soon). A quality Canvas course abides by copyright law and takes into consideration nature of the use, nature of the work used, extent of the use, and use’s economic effect. 


In my experience, educators want to abide by copyright law, but could often benefit from a refresher on copyright law and what constitutes a copyright infringement. What are your favorite resources to help educators deepen their understanding of copyright and digital copyright? Here are some of mine. 

Looking forward to hearing from the community how you help support your faculty and staff to gain clarity on copyright!

(Speaking of copyright, it's worth mentioning that in Canvas you can set Creative Commons license for a course, usage rights and user access for a course file and  course file folder.)
