Custom Curriculum Creation and Copyright: The Basics
Safely navigate the use of copyrighted works while providing students with relevant materials
Easy access to information along with the increased use of OERs (Open Educational Resources) have been instrumental to the exponential growth of curriculum leaders creating their own classroom materials. But creating, curating, and delivering the various types of content presents a number of challenges including one often overlooked yet important aspect: copyright law. Viewers of this webinar will:
- Be introduced to the purpose and basics of copyright
- Gain an understanding of “Exclusive Rights”
- Get clarification on how “Public Domain” applies to certain materials/works
XanEdu’s K-12 CustomBook Solutions makes education personalized and affordable by giving districts and states control to create materials tailored to the unique needs of their students, rather than asking students to adapt to a standard, off-the-shelf resource. Working with more than 1,200 education institutions nationally, XanEdu helps learners at all levels of education access high-quality, student-centered, innovative learning resources.

“Not only is the custom organization of the units more impactful for student achievement, but the strategies used to unpack a text or create a piece of writing have helped our teachers improve their practice.”
“Teachers really like the printed materials. As an added bonus, providing resources in print helped to significantly cut down teachers’ time at the copy machine, allowing them to spend more time focused on what’s important.”

According to Rebecca Kockler, Assistant Superintendent of Academic Content at the Louisiana Department of Education, “The Louisiana Department of Education designed Guidebooks to be practical and teacher-friendly. Our partnership with XanEdu allows us to make good on that commitment.”
