Digital Technologies and Online Learning and Sharing Increasing your digital fluency and developing an informed online presence are important aspects of your university experience. The Department of Focused Inquiry encourages the innovative use of a variety of technologies to enhance your learning. As a UNIV student, you will be expected to participate in online learning over the course of your work in this class. Working in an online environment opens up tremendous learning and sharing possibilities; however, it also creates unique challenges especially regarding your privacy and intellectual property rights. It is therefore important for you to know your rights and responsibilities when learning, sharing, and posting academic work online. Visibility Many online platforms allow you to control the visibility of your work (i.e. restricted to specific users, restricted to the VCU community, or publicly accessible). At a minimum, you must allow 4
your instructor to view your work. Please consult with your instructor if you would like more information about restricting the visibility of your online content. Licensing compliance Familiarize yourself with any user licensing agreements and applicable laws that may apply to the technologies you use. You should understand and comply with end-user licenses, platform policies, and applicable laws for any open-or protected-access sites that you use in support of your academic work. This includes sites such as Blackboard, YouTube, Google Drive, Slideshare, or any cloud storage you might use. Intellectual Property Rights You have intellectual property rights to the work you generate in support of your studies at VCU as described on VCU Intellectual Policy Statement. If a class project requires use of a site for which users must waive intellectual property rights, you have the right to utilize an alternate platform for posting or submission of your materials. Please consult with your instructor for more information.
