Description: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are sweeping the country and libraries and librarians are watching this development carefully. This series of four webinars will help librarians gain an understanding of the complexity of the MOOC “movement,” learn how to support students and faculty engaged with MOOCs, become familiar with the copyright and intellectual property requirements in relation to MOOCs, and hear what the future may hold for MOOCs.
The third webinar, “MOOCs: Copyright Management for Online Courses?” will be presented on November 6, 2013 by Kevin L. Smith, Director, Copyright and Scholarly Communication at Duke University Libraries. Libraries have become more proactive about educating users with regard to their rights and responsibilities vis à vis copyright and Kevin will offer insights into the library’s role in settings beyond the traditional classroom model.
Who should attend? Librarians, library administrators, and library educators interested in supporting and enhancing libraries’ preparation of and participation in MOOCs.
Presenter: Kevin L. Smith is Duke University’s first Director of the Copyright and Scholarly Communications Office. His principal role is to teach and advise faculty, administrators, and students about copyright, intellectual property licensing, and scholarly publishing. He is the Chair of the ACRL Research and Scholarly Environment Committee for 2012 – 2013 and a member of the steering committee for SPARC, the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition. He maintains a highly-regarded web log on scholarly communications (http://library.duke.edu/blogs/scholcomm/) that discusses copyright and publication in academia.
