  • Use SWTAFE orginal material where possible and make sure it is clearly attributed and identified.

Copyright

The legitimate use of material created by others (text, images etc) in teaching and learning is encouraged and supported here at South West Insitute of TAFE.

Under copyright law, limits exist as to what, and how much can be copied and/or communicated online. It is the responsibility of staff working on the production of teaching materials for delivery to students to be familiar with, and comply with their obligation as set out in the Institutes Copyright Guidelines  and  Copyright Policy

SWTAFE pays an annual fee so that staff are able to copy and communicate text and artistic works for educational purposes under a licence in the Copyright Act known as the Statutory Text and Artistic Works LIcence, or Part VB licence.

Allowances under this licence are:

Books 10% or one chapter. Only one chapter or 10% from a book can be online through Moodle at one time across all courses.
Journals/Magazines One article from a journal or more than one if on the same subject matter.
Images Use resources which are free for educational purposes. See Free Resources link above
Commerically produced DVDs, films and videos Can be played in class for educational use but cannot be copied or put online unless permission is sought  from the copyright owner.
Streamed videos and Youtube Link or embed to subscribed or publicly accessible videos rather than copying or uploading items to Moodle.  See Linking above on how to do this.
