Library Services in Learning Management Systems
The learning management system (LMS) has become a standard part of the higher education infrastructure, both for online and face-to-face courses. Continuing growth in online course offerings and the mobility of digitally connected students make the LMS essential for sharing course content and enabling communication among faculty and students. Along with instructor-created assignments and instructional modules, faculty add library-licensed content, open access and open educational resources, and other published sources to their LMS courses. Often this leads to questions related to copyright management, content licensing, and the role of the library in these efforts. This webinar will provide an overview of existing LMS systems and their capabilities. We will then address considerations of content provision within the LMS, including the application of Fair Use exemptions, the TEACH Act, and systems that can be added to the LMS that help manage copyright and licensing issues. Finally we will discuss the role of librarians as consultants on content discovery and using licensed and copyright-protected educational materials.
