What participants say about our online copyright certificate programs:“Thank you for offering this Certificate program. Today’s lesson has prompted me to draft a document/resource/table of frequently asked questions with a ‘scripted’ response plus links and references to substantiate that response. It should make my life a bit easier and could be accessed by others when I am not available.” – Rowan Arnott, Toronto District School Board“The Certificate program and each eTutorial is logical and linear, and the e-lessons are easily (and enjoyably) read and retained. The most value I expect to get is with the overall legality of copyright and how best to develop a personal risk/copyright management plan as it pertains to my photography. For my work, I can see how it has already benefited the School Division as we are reworking our Copyright protocols, policies, and most importantly our Professional Development and communications for our students, educators, and support staff.” – Bradley Hampson, MBA, Assistant Superintendent, Technology, Frontier School Division, Winnipeg“The Certificate program is fantastic. Beyond fantastic. I can’t recommend this program enough. It’s validating in that it reviews and supports the bits of copyright law that I’ve gleaned in doing this thing called ‘visual research’. It’s a great compilation of a lot of things that come up in our emails/facebook – eg: fair dealing, public domain, creative commons, digital rights, international clearance etc. I wish I had taken this course 15 years ago when I started. I wish I had taken this course anytime within the last 15 years. I feel like it’s making me a better researcher, and more confident in knowing the law behind our research scenarios.” – Michelle Demeyere, Visual Researcher, VRSC“I was able to immediately apply what I learned in the Certificate in Canadian Copyright Law program and I have already created a Fair Dealing Policy and Procedure. I am now in the process of creating a Copyright Strategy for our organization.” – Juanita Richardson, The Michener Institute of Education at UHN
