Register now for presentations concerning e-Learning Content Ownership Legal Issues and a new methodology/technology to increase engagement in e-Learning for all sectors.

Understanding Content Ownership Issues in Online Education: Presented by Dina Leytes a Practice Group Chair, Intellectual Property and New Media, at Griesing Law, a boutique law firm located in Philadelphia.  

Advances in online learning technology represent a paradigm shift in education and training, enabling near-universal access and free online courses. At the same time, online learning has created a number of complexities with which corporate and academic institutions are only beginning to grapple. A key set of concerns has to do with who owns and has rights to valuable content incorporated into online curricula. This interactive presentation will address the following issues that pertain to content ownership in online education:

  • Using third party copyrighted content with permission
  • Fair use theory and practice
  • Creating contracts that address ownership of multi-media materials
  • Updating work-for-hire and institutional IP policies for online learning

How to Make E-Learning Interactive, Engaging and Social: Presented by Karl Okamoto the co-founder and CEO of ApprenNet LLC, an education technology company.  He is also the Director of the Program in Business & Entrepreneurship Law and Professor of Law at Drexel University.  Okamoto serves on the Board of Directors of Cosi, Inc., a restaurant company, and as Chair of the Business Law Education Committee of the American Bar Association.

The heart of many e-learning solutions is a video presentation. A recorded lecture, voice over powerpoint, training video, these presentations transfer information in a scalable, anytime, anywhere manner. They are also often passive, isolating and dull. With support from the National Science Foundation, Professor Okamoto has developed a training method that retains the efficiency of traditional e-learning while re-inserting the interaction, engagement and community that face-to-face and small group learning offers. He will demonstrate this innovative training method and share use cases from both corporate training and academia.
