Transitioning to Remote Course Delivery

IMPORTANT : Faculty transitioning to online/remote course delivery in response to the COVID-19 situation are reminded to be aware of the copyright compliance guidelines at UFV. Changing formats from print/analog to digital is a copying practice with specific intellectual property laws to consider. But generally, if you could do something in a physical classroom, you can also do it in a virtual classroom. This Guide is intended to help answer your copyright questions, and we are here to support you.
