Copyright and iLearn

Copyright and iLearn – some guidelines

The “fair use” provision of the U.S. copyright law permits some material to be posted in iLearn.

What can I post on iLearn?

  1. You can always post links in iLearn to articles and e-books that are available electronically through the AUS library. Linking is always the best solution because it avoids most copyright issues and the links can stay in iLearn for multiple semesters. For instructions on how to link to library resources please see http://library.aus.edu/faculty-resources/linking-to-resources
  2. Links to freely available/open access material on the Internet
  3. Videos have to be streamed on iLearn, not made available for download. It is almost never permissible to stream an entire film without permission, but limited portions will often be allowed. For more on the library’s streaming procedures please see http://library.aus.edu/faculty-resources/streaming-video-reserves
