eLearning practitioners are increasingly creating educational materials that are offered on a wide scale, globally. With this dynamic frontier, emerge questions and concerns about intellectual property rights among content developers and providers. Questions such as who owns the digital materials and content that I create and post online? What are institutional or organizational limits of ownership to my e-materials and digital products? Can I patent my work and what are organizational implications? Do I have the right to use content for eLearning courses that is easily downloadable and found on the worldwide web at another organization? This webinar addresses intellectual property rights questions related to the content and development of eLearning educational materials and discusses its implications for practitioners, students and institutions or organizations.
