Use of Copyright-Protected Materials in Distance Education (Reflecting the 2002 TEACH Act)
Transmission of content must be made solely for students enrolled in the course, and for a finite amount of time connected to the use of the material for the particular class.
Material is not to be further disseminated or reproduced by students in a permanent format.
Content selected by instructors must be intended for educational pursuits, not for entertainment or any other purpose. It may not include transmission of textbooks or other materials which are typically purchased or acquired by students.
Fair use provisions continue to apply to the transmission of copyright materials for distance education.
The College sponsored course management software offerings will include the statement: “Materials used in connection with this course may be subject to copyright protection.”
