Intellectual Property Policies, E-Learning, and Web 2.0: Intersections and Open Questions

Tuesday, April 7, 2009


This ECAR research bulletin focuses on institutional intellectual property (IP) policy related to instructional products and systems generally and to e-learning specifically. It contrasts IP policies that apply in face-to-face instructional settings with those in e-learning environments, and it highlights the role that Web 2.0 applications play in those policies.
