These regular 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. These led to the creation of the ALT Copyright and Online Learning Special Interest Group (CoOL SIG) which supports the webinars and the community. The webinars have continued on a monthly basis and this page provides a schedule of upcoming events as well as an archive of previous webinars.
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. We have also got a playlist of the webinars recordings on the ALT You Tube channel.
Details of the webinars in reverse chronological order are listed below. All webinars take place in the same Blackboard Collaborate classroom at 11-12pm GMT unless otherwise stated:
