Copyright at CMB partners
As copyright becomes more complex, it is increasingly important for faculty and instructors to stay informed and aware of how teaching and learning are influenced by current laws and policies concerning the copying, digitization, and distribution of copyrighted works.
Encouraging voluntary adoption of open educational resources is one way Campus Manitoba tries to help institutions and their communities navigate this complex environment. To provide additional support, we’ve compiled a list of links to copyright resources and support at our partner institutions.
For instructors who have questions about copyright, please visit the website at your university or college for resources and support.
