Copyright for Learning and Teaching

Copyright Compliance Training Course

The Copyright Compliance Training Course is tailored for Bond educators covering the wide use of copyright works for educational purposes including Fair Dealing exceptions, the University’s Statutory Licences, Resource Lists and iLearn, Creative Commons licences and using AV material in multi-modal classes.  

All educators are encouraged to take this informative and instructional course which contains interactive quizzes and a final test. 

To access the course, go to iLearn > Communities > Bond HR Learning & Development > Copyright Compliance

iLearn@Bond guidelines

Using Resource Lists easily and seamlessly provides resources to your students in iLearn and is the compliant way to deliver content in line with the University's Copyright and iLearn policies.

If you are wanting to use an electronic resource from the web, or from a Library online database, stream a video or provide access to a government report then linking to the original resource from within a Resource List, or within an Articulate module, is the compliant method of delivery.  

Do not upload pdfs directly into iLearn subject sites.

The Library has created a guide for educators on how to create and manage Resource Lists.

Consult these other pages in the guide for compliant use of copyright material in iLearn and Collaborate.

Digital resources

Copyright compliant use of digital resources can be achieved by:

  • Linking to articles/chapters in Library databases and PDFs on legitimate websites in Resource Lists.

  • Placing only materials created by Bond University staff, i.e. where the copyright is owned by the University, into iLearn.

  • Placing a Copyright Notice at the beginning of each Bond University PowerPoint presentation that is uploaded.

  • Linking to YouTube and other videos from within Resource Lists.

 Most importantly: PDFs and hardcopy material (e.g. a book chapter) must be provided to the Library for scanning and/or registration before being made available in iLearn. Add the citation to your Resource List and tag "Scan to eReserve". You may attach a scanned version to the citation if you have one. The Library will complete copyright checking and transfer it to the eReserve repository.  Contact your Faculty Librarian for assistance.

Also see the Subject resources guidelines page for further information.

Use of online images

Artistic works such as digital images, photographs and diagrams found on the internet can be used for teaching purposes under the following conditions.

Educators must ensure that:

  • The Copyright Warning Notice is displayed at the beginning of the lecture or as the first slide in your PowerPoint presentation.
  • The work being used is referenced correctly.
  • The limits on copying under the statutory licence are applied.

It is also recommended that all PowerPoint presentations that can be downloaded are Bond branded.

Check with your Faculty Librarian on the use of images provided in subscription databases or another licence.

Compliance checks - it's part of our service

No copyright material (a PDF of an article, book extract, etc.) should be downloaded and stored in iLearn@Bond, even if this is permitted such as in the case of open access journals or freely available material on websites. Always link to the original resource, including e-articles or e-books in databases to which the Library subscribes via your subject Resources List.

Hardcopy materials must be provided to the Library for scanning and registration before being made available in iLearn. Add the citation to your Resource List and tag "Scan to eReserve". You may attach a scanned version to the citation if you have one. The Library will complete copyright checking and transfer it to the eReserve repository.  Contact your Faculty Librarian for assistance.

Copies of newspaper articles, photographs, images, extracts from e-books, etc. that cannot be linked to, should also be sent to the Library.  To comply with copyright law, the Library can only make digital copies of one chapter or 10% of a book, or one article from a journal issue.

Do not upload pdfs directly into iLearn subject sites.
