There have always been issues with the use of copyrighted materials in education, whether the item in question is in print or digital. Course materials uploaded to an online learning management system such as Canvas involve copyright laws but also in some cases the publisher's license, and "educational use" is not always enough to gain permission to use these materials. The information in this guide can help you figure out the correct usage of course materials.
STEVENS COPYRIGHT POLICY
The Stevens copyright policy states that permission must be obtained from the copyright holder when using copyrighted materials in a course beyond what can be considered fair use, and notes that "Stevens is committed to the support of fair use principles."
