copyright infringement

According to Purdue University (2016), Copyright Infringement is the act of violating any of a copyright owner’s exclusive rights granted by the federal Copyright Act.  There are three elements that must be in place in order for the infringement to occur.

  1. The copyright holder must have a valid copyright.
  2. The person who is allegedly infringing must have access to the copyrighted work.
  3. The duplication of the copyrighted work must be outside the exceptions.

In addition, if you refer to this website, you will understand more about Creative Commons. What Creative Commons is all about? Okay, let me briefly explain about it. According to Creative Common website, basically Creative Commons helps you legally share your knowledge and creativity to build a more equitable, accessible, and innovative world. They unlock the full potential of the internet to drive a new era of development, growth and productivity.

They work with numerous organisations  whom are leaders in the content and knowledge sharing movement. Through these platforms, over 1.1 billions works have been shared and counting.

Other than that, their work spans a variety of different areas and partners working to create a more vibrant commons. For instance, arts and culture, legal, open access, education, technology and much more.

All in all, this kind of copyright infringement is very crucial as mention in Paper Tigers (2012) because it encourages sharing. A person interested in a work under a Creative Commons licenses doesn’t have to track down the author and ask for permission to use the work. This allows for quick and easy sharing methods because it cuts out the time factor, the time it takes to track down the author and the time it takes for an author to grant or deny the permission being sought. Hence, you cannot simply copy and use someone’s works and claim as yours. It is ethically wrong.

Open Learning Tutorial

Hi all, today I would like to share with all of you about Open Learning tutorial we had with Dr. Shukri. There were a lot of information we got from this tutorial. Since we will be launching our own Mooc/Open learning soon, so these kind of inputs were really crucial for us.

Besides, before this face-to-face tutorial, we were not really understand (not really get the idea) on how to run this platform properly. In terms of how to upload files, how to upload videos, how to create new subtopics and countless more.

However, after this hands-on tutorial session, I believe that we are on the right track. So, we can start to produce as many materials as possible for our own unit. This is my first experience ever regarding Open Learning/MOOC, so yeah I am looking forward to it and I am pretty excited about how far this MOOC will go.

For this project, we will collaborate and brainstorm our ideas with the undergraduate students. As for my unit, we are going to prepare materials/info about Classroom Games such as Kahoot!, Socrative, as well as Poll Everywhere. In terms of materials, we will produce IT-based materials such as videos, infographics, slides, audio, and much more.

Basically, this is how our Open Learning will look like. However, we are not finalise it yet, but we will make sure to give the best for this project and beat the rest.
