Copyright and e-learning: do’s and don’t’s

Moodle and copyright guide

It’s the end of the first week of term at LSE and a lot of people seem to have spent the week asking me questions about copyright and Moodle. I was a little surprised by some of the questions. I’ve been telling people for years that the library offer a scanning service for core readings and they should not scan copyright material themselves. And also that they should link to e-journal articles rather than download them and put them into Moodle.So why this should come as news to some people is a little worrying!
We’re seeing record demand for the epack service this year. I’ve also been updating the Copyright FAQs on our website, produced updated versions of our printed guides to copyright and a new one page leaflet on Copyright and Moodle: Do’s and Don’t’s. So no excuses this term! I expect all the courses to be shining examples of good practice.
