Learning On Screen is the new name for the British Universities Film and Video Council (BUFVC). The e-CHARM project is a 6 month research project to better understand the needs of the education sector with regards to copyright and audiovisual material. The first phase of this research is a short survey, which should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. We would be grateful if as many librarians, learning technologists, teachers and lecturers could take the time to complete it. The survey will help us understand the needs of the sector.
Understanding copyright and licensing is an important aspect of teaching and learning in the digital age. Librarians and teaching staff currently grapple to understand what they and their learners can do with digital content in an educational context. Copyright for audiovisual materials often involves several layers of rights, which increases the complexity The survey will be open until Monday 10th July and respondents have the option to enter a prize draw to win a £20 Amazon voucher.
We will also be looking for volunteers from across the higher and further education and schools sectors to join focus groups or take part in telephone interviews in early August. The survey gives you the option to leave your contact details if you are willing to take part in further research.
This research is being led by Lisa Jeskins, in conjunction with Chris Morrison and Jane Secker.
