Copyright and learning technologies

This section provides a brief overview of copyright legislation and how it affects our use of material in Moodle courses and on course websites.

It is important to stress that copyright legislation must be adhered to. UCL can be prosecuted if any infringements are found. Copyright legislation is still in the process of catching up with new technologies, in particular the massive growth of the web. This doesn’t mean though, that there aren't any rules governing the use of online material.

Useful contacts

Teaching & Learning Services (TLS) manages the CLA and other copyright licences which can be used for taught courses, and can also help with gaining copyright permission for resources not covered by these licences. The UCL Copyright webpages have further copyright information and guidance. The Copyright Support Officer offers workshops and training to student, research or staff groups, and is available for advice and support.
