uAlberta Opening Up Copyright Instructional Modules: An Update

January 28, 2019

The team behind the University of Alberta’s Opening Up Copyright instructional modules is pleased to share an update on the series along with several new openly licensed modules and renewed opportunities to contribute.

Building on the initial two modules (Images and Public Domain) released in March 2018, we have now produced six additional modules on the following topics:

  • Open Licensing and Creative Commons
  • Other Types of Intellectual Property (IP)
  • Theoretical Foundations for Copyright
  • CCH v. LSUC
  • SOCAN v. Bell, and
  • Section 13: Ownership of Copyright

All of the modules can be found here:

We’d also like to emphasize that these modules are published under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) licence so that they can be adopted and adapted by anyone. On the page for each module you will find a link to the associated script and slides, to allow for adaptation. The scripts and slides are also made available under a CC-BY licence.

More information about the series is available on the “About” page.

In addition, we would like to highlight the Opening Up Copyright Community Pages. The Community Pages provide an overview of the entire suite of modules to be developed as part of the series, and also indicates which modules are currently under development. Furthermore, we encourage you to contribute to the individual module pages, where we hope to collect your ideas, feedback or suggestions. Please consider sharing suggestions for Learning Objectives, ideas for Narratives or Contextual Stories, Test Questions, Links to Useful Resources, or Other Suggestions for modules that interest you. You also have the option of including your name on these pages, so that we can provide attribution for your contributions at the end of the module. Completed modules will be revised in the summer of 2019, based on feedback provided in the Community Pages or sent directly to with the subject line “OER Copyright Module.”

The Opening Up Copyright instructional modules series receives funding through the Centre for Teaching and Learning’s Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund at the University of Alberta.
