If you are using content other than your own in your teaching material or recordings, then you will need to ensure that you have the appropriate permissions to use that content (e.g. extracts of text, images, recordings).
UWE’s Library has comprehensive information on its Copyright and teaching page. This includes information on the different licences available for using:
- Text under the Copyright Licensing Agency’s Education licence, and using the Library’s Digitisation Service.
- Licensed e-resources (i.e. databases, e-journals and e-books).
- TV and radio programmes.
- Print and digital newspaper publications.
- Ordnance surveys.
There is also a list of exceptions under which you can use copyright content for educational purposes, and examples of copyright in practice:
- Copying images for teaching (also see our blogpost on Copyright-free images for use in teaching activities).
- Sharing TV and radio recordings.
- Event Capture (also see our blogpost on Panopto Recordings – The safe and effective way to include YouTube content).
If you are unsure of when you can legitimately use content other than your own in your teaching materials and recordings, please contact the library.
