    This course helped me understand the why of copyright. Fostering creativity is the basis for copyright law. Understanding this along with Fair Use, which was explained in the course, helped increase my understanding of copyright, why we have it, and ways to use it in order to foster creativity. The four pillars of Fair Use: The purpose of use, nature of the copyrighted work, how much is used, and the market value of the work all matter. When these things are thought over when we use someone's work it helps to understand if we are following the law as it pertains to copyright. Introducing Creative Commons was also helpful. I like the videos and the examples given.

    Im from spain, and of course we have another public domain, but i didnt know that, it even exist! it was really interesting. Another thing that is really usefull, are the webs that they give to the teachers for using legal music and other stuff. Its a short course, but i really appreciated.

    Some videos have no subtitles so as a non-native speaker of English, I have faced some difficulties. Moreover, I'd like to suggest a peer learning style, the course is a little bit boring for now.

    It was helpful and I also learn a lot of issues about previous matters as instituter gave example. But lecture 4 is little bit confusing.
    Thank you.

    Copyright is important to the future of creativity and the Internet. Beyond the students’ immediate needs, the future of both creativity and the Internet will be affected by how citizens choose to interact with creative work. We all want to encourage...

    Firstly i would like to thank my mentor teacher for recommending this course, if it wasnt for her i wouldnt be able to understand the terms of copyright and might have gotten myself into big trouble while giving copyrighted works without knowing. This course helped me understand what is copyright and how to tell it apart from fake works, it also helped me understand the work that is done from a writers perspective and how hard it is to create a work from the beginning.

    The course was great and has a lot of information on how to avoid copyright infringements and plagiarism. This course helped me how to give proper citations and references to the author or owner of a document, article, etc. that we usually use when writing academic papers like researches, summaries, essays, reflections, reviews, etc. The course will surely help many people especially students like me when we are writing our own research paper or thesis.

    I really enjoyed the online course. I thought it was well planned and layed out, easy for me to follow. The work load(h.w. & test)was just enough, so i could finish everything with enough time, learn about the topics and not feel over loaded and rushed.

    To be honest , this was my first online class. I am looking forward to taking more online classes.I never expected to learn so much from an online course

    The course was helpful in that it gave information on how to correctly use copyright material and how to teach students how to use and cite work that they get from the internet. It is important with all the technology and online resources that we are aware of the copyright laws and how to make sure we are being fair and legal when using someone else's material.

    This course was a successful course for me. The reason for that is that it helped me understand what can be published and what cannot be published on canvas. Certain videos and assignments are not suppose to be published and that can hinder the learning of the students.

    This course was helpful! I appreciate being able to learn more about copyright and having the ability to put my knowledge to use with my fellow staff members. It is important to learn about copyright in this day and age to protect ourselves and the artist creating the work.

    Very informative and more time is needed to understand totally. I found it very interesting, but had limited time. I am not technology savvy. So I would need to learn how to navigate the lessons better.
