SEMINAR: Copyright and the TEACH Act

Did you know that ASU Online ascribes to the specifications of the TEACH Act in its use of audio, video, and images in course content delivery.

The Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization (TEACH) Act is a provision of US Copyright law that regulates the use of copyrighted materials in distance education courses. It should not be confused with Fair Use which is another and separate provision of US Copyright law.

Although the TEACH Act provides greater latitude regarding usage of media materials in distance education courses, it also is accompanied by enhanced stipulations in its implementation.

We also have a 1 hour seminar coming up (June 7th) about using copyrighted media in your courses.
