Copyright Training and New Smartcopying Site Launch

8 July 2021

The National Copyright Unit is pleased to announce that their new Smartcopying website is now live!

We have not only updated the look of the website, but much of the content has also been updated and refreshed as well (including new FAQs and a new Copyright Guidelines section).

Copyright Guidelines

To explore the new website, please head to smartcopying.edu.au

The National Copyright Unit (NCU) is also offering a series of free and practical webinars to help teachers navigate copyright while teaching.

These free webinars are open to all Australian schools and TAFEs (excluding Victorian TAFEs) and are targeted to teachers and teacher-librarians/librarians. The webinar covers topics such as:

  • basic introduction to copyright
  • what schools and TAFEs are allowed to do under the various education licences
  • free education use exceptions – flexible dealing, exam copying, performing and communicating works in the classroom and disability access exceptions
  • guidelines for schools and TAFEs about teaching students online
  • using Netflix, YouTube and audiobooks in class, including virtual classes
  • finding and using ‘Creative Commons’ licensed material and ‘Open Education Resources’.
