The University of Denver is committed to providing access to educational resources with as few restrictions as possible, while recognizing the need to respect the intellectual property rights of content creators. Unfortunately, it may be difficult at times to know how to accomplish both of these aims and to feel confident that we’re abiding by copyright law.
The Office of Teaching and Learning has created a “Do This, Not That” set of guidelines for using copyrighted materials in the Canvas learning management system. Please refer to these guidelines as you prepare course materials for upcoming academic terms.
