  • I really appreciate that their a course here in Canvas that discusses and teaches about what copyright is, because now that we are in the 21st Century, we tend to take everything for granted such as sets of knowledge and information. All of them are just one click away, and at times because of that all-access freedom, we usually forgot to give credit or at least acknowledge our sources and see everything as a "free real estate". I definitely learned a lot and this course really clarified all my confusions and uncertainties in regards to topics like this especially on how fundamental this is, be it on my academic and personal life and integrity.

    So, thank you very much and I appreciate it.

    It was thorough and very interesting. It will definitely help me in the graduate class that I am currently taking. It will also help me when I take the copyright course. I would recommend this to anyone who is wanting to learn more about copyright or wanting a refresher on the laws.........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

    This course is very important to our daily lives as teachers. The reason why is: we use various materials from the internet and they are protected by copyright law.; if we do not know we would be braking the law. In adition lerming the cretive commons, public domain and fair use are the most important because we can use those internet materials without braking the law and teach that as well.

    I enjoyed learning the difference between the different copyrights as well as my rights. This course can help so many in K-12 as well as higher education. Expectations of the student should also be expected of the faculty memeber.

    It was a fascinating course. It provided me with the basic about copyright. To be honest, I wanted it to be a larger training, because the way it was taught made the content easy to digest.

    Copyright is something that is an important thing that we should learn and familiarize ourselves with. Especially if you are a student, a teacher, or a speaker or writer. Having in-depth knowledge about it is truly a helpful one.

    I would say that the discussion part really helped me to have more knowledge about copyright. The lessons themselves are comprehensive and clear which helps me to understand them more since this is self-paced learning. Additionally, the activities are manageable since the questions are based on the discussion part. So, it would be easy for me to grasp the lesson. The questions or activities are manageable too.

    It is an interesting course to be taken as a professional Development for educators.
    Many students nowadays become lazy in a way that they prefer plagiarize other people’s work than strive to do their own work. Since it is illegal, it is important for educators to have such training in order to be able to sensitize their students about the importance of copyright.
    The course itself was wonderful, it covered almost all important information an educator needs to know so far. I will recommend this course to all educators to beneficiate from it full rich content.

    The Copyright for Educators' course contains viable information for navigating not only the basics of Copyright but also Fair Use. The examples of how or if the Four Factors used to determine if a violation of Fair Use has occurred were informative as well as easy to understand.

    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.

    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.

    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
