Training and workshops
LTI offer face to face copyright training each term. See the Digital Literacy programme for details. We can also arrange one to one and small group briefings on copyright issues.
We have also developed an online course in Moodle on Copyright, the internet and teaching Online (LSE staff and students should log in, but Guest Access also available).
Copyright is an issue you need to consider seriously when creating any digital teaching materials or preparing copies for teaching purposes. LSE has produced a LSE Guide to Copyright 2015. There is also a series of Frequently asked Questions about Copyright and E-learning which you are advised to consult.
Changes were made to UK law on 1st June 2014 that affect the copying lecturers, researchers and students might do. Read our guidance about these new copyright exceptions.
Although you are creating a course within Moodle, which is a closed environment for your students, you still need to consider carefully the resources you are using and take care not to infringe other people’s copyright. If you have any doubt about whether you need copyright permission to use a particular item in your teaching it is always best to check first.
The Library offer an Digitised readings (Epack) service for staff interested in obtaining scanned readings for use in Moodle. Readings are then presented to students using ReadingLists@LSE and you can get more help and advice with reading lists in Moodle.
