Courseware & Copyright: Who's Rights Are Right?
Zhang, Ke; Carr-Chellman, Ali
This paper addresses the difficult issues of balancing faculty and university rights and responsibilities regarding courseware and courseware modules developed as both commissioned and non-commissioned works. The ways in which this debate affects those who are engaged in building their own online courses for their universities, courseware development as consulting practice, and work for universities as faculty development Web development experts are addressed. First, the paper examines some of the concerns that are raised initially as one considers courseware copyright policies, then the attention turns to more deeply understanding three contexts in which courseware copyright policies are either being considered or have recently been passed into campus legislation. Finally, the concerns that evolve from that deeper understanding of these new policies are reconsidered. (Contains 20 references.) (Author/AEF)
