The course absolutely met my expectations. I was hoping to come out of it with a game plan to start implementing a copyright education strategy within my institution and that is exactly what I got. I am excited to start mapping this out! I know it will greatly benefit my workplace to have this kind of initiative in place. I love the e-mail format — makes it easier to get to the lessons when I can, even from home if need be! I highly recommend this course, especially if someone is working in similar circumstances to me wherein the very small copyright team is vastly outnumbered by the amount of colleagues who need their expertise and help on a daily basis.

Testimonials for Our Courses
Thank you very much [for instructing Developing A Copyright Policy.] This course has forced us to put down on paper what we need to move copyright forward in our institution.
— Patricia Sutherland, Library Manager, College of the North Atlantic, Qatar
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
