Webinars: copyright and online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic

These weekly webinars hosted by the Association of Learning Technology (ALT) started on Friday 20th March in response to queries largely from those in higher education related to  copyright and online learning following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift to online learning.

The webinars are free to all and aimed at  those interested in talking about copyright challenges at the current time and how we can address them. We have published a page full of resources and the original blog post that led to us starting this series on Copyright, Fair Dealing and Online Teaching in a time of Crisis.

No registration is required to join these events which will be hosted in the following Blackboard Collaborate classroom and are listed on the ALT website.
