  • great deal of work to maintain
  • Make images as small as practical, to speed download time.
  • Making a website highly usable is a process involving several steps:
  • t is not a highly flexible content
    Overall an informative page with some good guidelines. I especially appreciate the comments about keeping the maintainance work load low. Creating a blog is a good idea, but it has not been practiclal here in China since free services like blogger and edublogs are blocked. Adding wordpress to the ISP is the best solution. I tried this at one point and the server lost the wordpress download. Time and frustration has not allowed me to try it again, but I know it will work. I'm surprised there is not a suggestion for wiki links. J. Valenza has shown that this is an easy and possibly effective collaborative process.

Fair use and transformativeness: It may shake your world - NeverEndingSearch - Blog on ... - 0 views

  • copyright is designed not only to protect the rights of owners, but also to preserve the ability of users to promote creativity and innovation.
  • the critical test for fairness in terms of educational use of media is transformative use
  • adds value to, or repurposes materials for a use different from that for which it was originally intended, it will likely be considered transformative use; it will also likely be considered fair use

  • BGA filed suit against DK for copyright infringement.  The courts threw the case out, agreeing with DK's claim of fair use. The posters were originially created to promote concerts.  DK's new use of the art was designed to document events in historical and cultural context. The publisher added value in its use of the posters. And such use was transformative.
  • The fact that permission has been sought but not granted is irrelevant.  Permission is not necessary to satisfy fair use.
  • What is fair, because it is transformative, is fair regardless of place of use.
  • One use not likely to be fair, is the use of a music soundtrack merely as an aesthetic addition to a student video project.
  • adding value, engaging the music, reflecting, somehow commenting on.the music
  • photocopying a text book because it is not affordable is still not fair use
    a discussion to "develop a shared understanding of how copyright and fair use applies to the creative media work that our students create and our own use of copyrighted materials as educators, practitioners, advocates and curriculum developers."
    This seems like an obvious share. An important discussion because it also opens more collaboration with colleagues. I have found that some colleagues want to avoid the gatekeeper because of the conservative nature of understanding copyright and fair use. This has been even more difficult while being in an international school.
