It is difficult to know what rules, you as an educator, are subject to. Sadly, there are different rules for just about everything. There are rules for video, for audio, for text and for graphics. All of these rules are different and there are even different rules within those rules are even different rules within those rules. Feeling tense yet? Our goal in this class is to ease some of your frustration. 2 We’ve tried to distill the copyright information into a three We ve tried to distill the copyright information into a three color system.
