  • Just as it is legal to to show slides with images in class, is it generally legal to show them to students using live video conferencing or recorded videos, as long as your new course video is being shared through a password-protected course website like Blackboard.
  • Many instructors routinely post a copy of their slides as a file for students to access after in-person course meetings.  In most cases, faculty will own the copyright in or have a license to use their slides.  However, if you are incorporating third-party materials into your lessons, they should be in keeping with Medicine Hat College's Copyright Guidelines or other license agreements associated with the content.
