All Rights Reserved: Copyright MOOC begins on July 21st

CopyrightpiratesFrom July 21-August 18, Coursera will offer a free professional development MOOC on US copyright law for librarians and educators. The course, Copyright for Educators & Librarians, will be taught by instructors from Duke, Emory, and UNC Chapel Hill. Here is a brief summary about the 4 week course:

Fear and uncertainty about copyright law often plagues educators and sometimes prevents creative teaching. This course is a professional development opportunity designed to provide a basic introduction to US copyright law and to empower teachers and librarians at all grade levels. Course participants will discover that the law is designed to help educators and librarians.

A cohort of VCCS faculty and staff have registered for the MOOC. You can connect with them via Google Sites here.
