CopyTalk Webinar: TEACH-ing Video Online?

Join the ALA Copyright, Legislation, Education, and Advocacy Network (CLEAN) for a free CopyTalk webinar at 2:00 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, May 7.

In recent years, K-12 and academic libraries have seen an increasing demand to provide online access to film that can be used as part of course instruction. The Technology, Education and Copyright Harmonization (TEACH) Act, found in Section 110(2), of U.S. copyright law provides one option for connecting students with video as part of online learning. In this 60-minute webinar, we’ll look at the requirements of the TEACH Act and also explore additional options available to libraries and educational institutions looking to connect instructors and students with video online, including via streaming reserve services.

The presenter will be Carla Myers, who serves as Assistant Professor and Coordinator of Scholarly Communications for the Miami University Libraries. Her professional presentations and publications focus on fair use, copyright in the classroom, and library copyright issues. Carla is also a member of the ALA Policy Corps.
