Keep Copyright in Mind
Instructors and the University have a shared responsibility to ensure that copyright is respected when making use of materials in teaching.
You may upload content to LEARN if the material falls into one of the following categories:
- You own the copyright in the material (e.g., your course notes);
- The material was copied under a Copyright Act exception, such as the Fair Dealing or Educational Institutions exceptions;
- The material is subject to a Library licence that allows use in LEARN;
- The material is in the public domain (copyright protection usually expires 50 years after the death of the creator);
- The material has an open licence, such as a Creative Commons licence;
- The material is a very small amount, such as a quote; or
- You have received permission from the copyright holder for such use.
In all cases the content must be legal/legitimate copies.
If you have questions about whether your material meets one of these requirements, please consult the Copyright Guide for Instructors or contact email@example.com. If you would like to gain a better understanding of copyright check out the Canadian Association of Research Libraries’ free, online Copyright modules designed for university instructors and staff.
