Guidelines for Multimedia Use in DSU Online Instruction.
These guidelines and resources for posting copyright-compliant media on the DSU streaming server are presented to encourage DSU faculty to integrate multimedia in online and hybrid courses.
Quick-Check Streaming Server Posting Guidelines
- Work is created and performed by faculty or students and used with permission.
- Media are textbook or software publisher resources and used with permission.
- The copyright holder has been contacted and content is used with permission.
- Entire work will be shown synchronously under the control or actual supervision of instructor and as an integral part of the class experience to fulfill an important instructional objective.
- Portions of a copyrighted work are posted in accordance with either the doctrine of Fair Use (http://www.copyright.gov/title17/) or the expanded rights and privileges provided to educators in online environments provided by the TEACH Act (http://www.utsystem.edu/ogc/intellectualproperty/teachact.htm)
DeSales Streaming Media Policy for Copyrighted Works
An entire work may be streamed IF that work will be shown in a synchronous online class session and NOT made available for individual online viewing at any other time.
Without prior consent from the copyright holder, no more than 50% of a copyrighted work should be streamed as long as the portion(s) streamed does not contain a qualitatively substantial portion of the work and is not designed to replace a student's purchase of the copyrighted work.
Trexler library staff can help identify copyright holders and assist instructors with requesting copyright holder permission to use full length works. Acknowledging a source does not substitute for seeking permission.
Important: All media on the DSU streaming server must be accompanied by a Streaming Server Request Form and Copyright Waiver. Streaming Server media becomes unavailable to students seven (7) days after a course ends. Faculty media will be purged from the server after two years at the end of the academic year unless DEIT is otherwise notified in writing. TEACH Act time limits is our guide.
Note: The U.S. Copyright Law codified the doctrine of Fair Use in section 107 of the U.S. Copyright Law (http://www.copyright.gov/title17/). See also http://www.desales.edu/copyright and http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ21.pdf .
