Very informative course presented by knowledgeable instructors. Gained a greater appreciation for the pros and cons of copyright, in addition to a respect for the complexity and nuance in this area.

I wish I had taken this course at the very beginning of my graduate studies. I learned so much that would have been useful during my long journey from graduate student, to professor, to archivist.

This is a very informative course. The instructors do a good job of explaining material and keep the course from becoming overwhelming with information and readings. For a good foundation on copyright law in education and library settings, I would recommend this course.

This course was a good introduction to copyright law and fair use. I will definitely use what I've learned on the job. I will also be looking to take additional classes on this topic.

I enjoyed this course more than I thought I would; the presenters were clear and comfortable with their subject, and presented the material in a way that was easy to follow and learn.

The majority of course lectures are clear and informative, but the video lectures regarding TEACH act part is not as clear as the other topics.

Great team and good information. Logically organized. I'd love to find a similar course for writers, not just educators and librarians.

Great course for Librarians! However, other international copyright laws would have been discussed in the course, not just the USA.

It was interesting and informative however as a Canadian, it is not as relevant to me as it is to people in the U.S.

I gave it 3 stars for the age of the materials and supplemental readings. A lot of content is around 10 years old. While this may not be an issue for a topic such as copyright, it gives the impression that the content has not been reviewed or updated. An acknowledgement that the content selected is still relevant and nothing has been found to replace the current resources would confirm that the course is occasionally reviewed and updated as needed.

Having the balancing of videos and reading was very good. Please consider including strategies at the beginning for reading dense legal documents. Please also describe where the forums can be accessed at the beginning of the course. Also consider adding more scenarios for teachers in secondary education, and more scenarios over all. Please make the quizzes longer. Thank you for this resource and for the online format - the flexibility is very much appreciated.

Useful material for anyone with an interest in protecting their copyrighted work. Gets a little dry when focusing on only library applications.
