Now that the TEACH Act (Technology, Education, And Copyright Harmonization Act) is law, institutions are eager to take advantage of its new provisions. How did the TEACH Act change copyright law? What are the implications for distance education and Web-enhanced courses? What are the policy, educational, and technology requirements for an institution taking advantage of the Act?
This session will provide an overview of the TEACH Act and introduce The TEACH Toolkit, an online resource for understanding copyright and distance education. The Toolkit is a joint project of the North Carolina State University Libraries, Office of Legal Affairs, and Distance Education & Learning Technology Applications.
