A Visit To Copyright Bay A great copyright site with memorable graphics. If you learn visually, take a look at this site.http://www.stfrancis.edu/cid/copyrightbay/
Circular 21—A Teacher’s Guide to Fair Use and Copyright. THE law as it is currently interpreted. Every teacher should read Section C (pages 5-11) at least once. It’s a .pdf file, so you’ll need Adobe Reader. http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ21.pdf
To Copy or Not to Copy A good, current summary of educational copyright. (Thanks, Paul Baeder.) http://www.aea2.k12.ia.us/Tutorials/Copyright/Copyright_.html

Online classes count as “face to face” instruction, and qualify for many of the same educational exemptions as traditional classes.
Nevertheless, you can’t put the material into another format without violating copyright. Digitizing an entire movie or book and putting it on a web site for your students is illegal, even if you might legitimately have shown that movie to your in-class students, or handed them the book.
You can put materials on hold in the library for your students, and you can put online (on a private class website) the materials that would be allowed under the RTC copyright policy.
Note: In 2002, Congress updated the Copyright Act to allow the digitalization of some content for online courses. This was called the Teach Act. RTC has not yet taken the necessary steps to utilize this act. If you want more information on the Teach Act, check out the Teach Act Toolkit website: http://www.provost.ncsu.edu/copyright/toolkit/
