Copyright: Copyright & ASULearn

What is allowed?

Posting an item to Moodle does not exempt an instructor from copyright regulations. Instructors are encouraged to:

  • Link to articles and media from library databases.
  • If a persistent link is unavailable, complete a Fair Use Evaluation, create a file, and then upload it to ASULearn.
  • Repeated use over multiple semesters weighs against fair use. For repeated use, you will likely need to contact the publisher and request permission.
