EDUC622 - Ethics and Legal Issues in Online Learning


This course will focus on the issue of ownership of certain types of intellectual property on the internet, which has become a critical issue with emerging Web 2.0 technologies becoming so prevalent in our schools and culture. In this course online, face-to-face, and hybrid educators, or candidates, will learn about the different types of potential copyright infringement and its implication for course development. There will be an attempt to dispel the common notion that since material is readily available on the internet, it is now public domain and is free from copyright concerns. (Candidates in the M. Ed. Teaching-Concentration in Secondary Social Studies program must take the 16-week course version per the West Virginia Board of Education-no exceptions.)
