ALCTS Webinar: MOOCs: Copyright Management for Online Courses?
Date: November 6, 2013
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.
Description: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are sweeping the country
and libraries and librarians are watching this development carefully. This
series of four webinars will help librarians gain an understanding of the
complexity of the MOOC “movement,” learn how to support students and
faculty engaged with MOOCs, become familiar with the copyright and
intellectual property requirements in relation to MOOCs, and hear what the
future may hold for MOOCs.
The third webinar, “MOOCs: Copyright Management for Online Courses?” will
be presented on November 6, 2013 by Kevin L. Smith, Director, Copyright and
Scholarly Communication at Duke University Libraries. Libraries have become
more proactive about educating users with regard to their rights and
responsibilities vis à vis copyright and Kevin will offer insights into the
library’s role in settings beyond the traditional classroom model.
Who should attend? Librarians, library administrators, and library
educators interested in supporting and enhancing libraries’ preparation of
and participation in MOOCs.
Presenter: Kevin L. Smith is Duke University’s first Director of the
Copyright and Scholarly Communications Office. His principal role is to
teach and advise faculty, administrators, and students about copyright,
intellectual property licensing, and scholarly publishing. He is the Chair
of the ACRL Research and Scholarly Environment Committee for 2012 – 2013
and a member of the steering committee for SPARC, the Scholarly Publishing
and Academic Resources Coalition. He maintains a highly-regarded web log on
scholarly communications (http://library.duke.edu/blogs/scholcomm/) that
discusses copyright and publication in academia.
