Courseware Copyright: Whose Rights Are Right?


Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 34, Number 2, ISSN 0735-6331


This article discusses the difficult issues of balancing faculty and university rights and responsibilities regarding courseware developed either as commissioned or non-commissioned work in higher education. The article addresses the varied concerns among university personnel and higher education institutions, reviews two major models for developing institutional courseware copyright policies, and investigates related policies at three major universities in the United States. The investigation and discussion focus on how these policies may affect higher education institutions and instructional design faculty and service instructional designers in universities.
