Yes it is possible to record material streamed in class, but under a number of conditions:
If the content is a licensed item from Clickview or EduTV, then no, you do not have to pause the recording. This is covered under our Screenrights Licence, so we may stream this in class as well as record and communicate it. The lecturer may wish to include a Copyright notice at the beginning of the lecture recording in order to ensure that we are copyright compliant. There is such a Copyright notice on the EduTV page. Something along these lines would be suitable:
This material has been copied and communicated to you under a Screenrights licence pursuant to Section 113P of the Copyright Act 1968 solely for the educational purposes of your institution. No other use is authorised.
If you wanted to use small clips only however, and because there is no other exception or licence that allows for this content to be recorded, it could theoretically be recorded under the Flexible Dealing exception (s200AB). This is an exception of last resort, and should be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
The QUT Copyright officer can assess them under s200AB against the following conditions:
Universities take a risk-management approach to the application of s200AB, so QUT Copyright can assist in determining whether the proposed use satisfies the above criteria and falls under s200AB.
Always check with the QUT university copyright officer for the individual film or documentary as they will investigate the publisher requirements firstname.lastname@example.org
Netflix does allow for the streaming of some documentary films for educational purposes. Films marked ‘Grant of Permission for Educational Settings’ allow for ‘one-time educational screenings’. This means you can stream the video in a classroom setting under the following conditions:
To find out which titles are available for educational screenings, visit media.netflix.com and search for the title.
2019 is the UN Year of Indigenous Languages and time to consider the importance of knowing more about local Aboriginal words and place names. In an interview Wesley Enoch (artistic director, QUT graduate)said a good place to start is to know whose land you are on, what they call the place and how to say hello and / or goodbye.
So with that in mind below are a few words that might be interesting:
Yugara (Brisbane Region):
Wunya (won-yah) = welcome
Gurumba bigi (Goo-room-bah big-ee) = good day
Turrbal [Brisbane Northern Suburbs, Caboolture]:
Galang nguruindhau = good day (Gull-ung ngoo-roon-die)
Jandai [Stradbroke Island]
Maroomba biggee = good day (Mah-room-bah big-ee )
There is a nice video of Wesley Enoch teaching some Jandai words here: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=10155917798602378

The advice below is our best understanding of the current access situation in China. We have been told that sometimes access may be "patchy". That is, a service that is known to be "available" may not be available for all students at all times. Daily and regional variations can occur.
Access to electronic resources
Status: On the whole there are few known database or eBook restrictions. Most platforms are available. Academic libraries and vendors are working closely together to share information. Linkedin Learning (formerly Lynda.com) appears to be "patchy". The latest report is that LinkedIn Learning iOS and Android apps won't authenticate from within China and users with a LinkedIn account can't link it to their enterprise LinkedIn Learning account. We will continue to monitor the situation.
Document Delivery is an option if individual students are unable to access resources electronically (see below).
Status: there are no known issues. As above.
Status: There are no known issues for requesting or supply.
Access to print books / print material
Status: There is some complexity in this area (logistical, copyright etc) , with no "one size fits all" approach , and so each request needs to be addressed on a case-by-case basis.
Status: Some formats may not be available (for example YouTube or Vimeo videos / links embedded in Blackboard will not work. These can be re-uploaded to Echo360 to ensure access and copyright compliance)
Borrowing, Renewing, Returning Loans
Status: There are some logistical issues with mail to and from China and / or access to mail centres within China.
Enquiry Services / Help
Status: HiQ have confirmed that they are successfully receiving and responding to enquiries through AskQUT email, online chat and telephone
Safari has changed its settings - this is causing problems for users of QUT ReadingsComing from Blackboard into QUT Readings, you will be unable to log in and access your reading lists or you appear to have logged in but are asked to do so again. This is due to the constraints put in place by Safari

If you request a digitization of a book chapter when it is available as an ebook then it will usually rejected on the assumption of user error.
However if you want a digitisation because the ebook only allows limited users or users will be offline - then please email email@example.com to let them know that you know it's an ebook but still require the digitisation & why.
Please note - the HBR website (and others) sometimes only allow a user to access 3 articles per month.
All questions, please ask your business liaison librarians: firstname.lastname@example.org
A Copyright Permissions content area will be added to all Blackboard teaching site templates in 2020. In addition, any new sites created this year by Blackboard and LTU will include the Copyright Permissions area.
Most 2019 BB sites have already been created using the current templates which do not include the Copyright Permissions content area but Unit Coordinators can manually add the content area. You can find the instruction for doing so on the DWP > Teaching with Technology > Copyright Guidelines page.
UCs should use the content area to store permissions for third-party copyright resources they have uploaded to Blackboard, including:
UCs will not need to create the area if they do not have permissions to upload.
If you have any questions please contact the copyright compliance offier: email@example.com . She is happy to create the content area for you
Study Smart (online tutorials on information research and literacy) has a brand new look/feel after a major content revision and website upgrade.

Quick guide to copyright in QUT Blackboard
For information on uploading resources to QUT Blackboard and how copyright relates to them, see the Quick Guide to Blackboard and Copyright (PDF, 327KB)
Copyright compliance on Blackboard is easy with these 4 steps:
To ensure student access to high demand items, request they be placed in the Course Reserve Collection. Personal copies of texts can also be placed in the Course Reserve.
Items in Course Reserve have a maximum two hour loan period and cannot leave the library.
Use the Course Reserve request form to put items in Course Reserve and allow 3 working days to process requests.
Prescribed textbooks and Recommended textbooks are purchased by the Library Resource Services using the Textbook adoption form list supplied by the Bookshop.
Prescribed texts are bought to a ratio of 1 to 50 students to a ceiling of 10 and recommended books are bought to a ratio of 1 to 100 students to a ceiling of 3.
eBooks are preferred and supplied whenever possible.
Let me know as soon as possible if you require new material be purchased for the collection to support your teaching – this can just as well be supplementary material you would like students to access.
The Economics Network has designed this unique symposium to explore and demonstrate some possibilities for online teaching, learning and assessment in economics. The symposium will consist of four “themes” in online economics education and will take place mainly over the month of June with the final theme in September.
With the program moving into the final theme this September archived against the three prior themes are many additional resources and professional development materials from which to draw for future development of classes and lectures.
Rather than uploading a pdf to Blackboard - link instead
Even if the pdf of the article is available via QUT databases or freely available online, Australian copyright legislation still means it's not okay to copy & redistribute (unless is specifically has a Creative Commons license) or you can request permission from the copyright owners - but you'll need to include a permission in the Blackboard site
If what you want to redistribute is in print, use QUT Readings to bookmark the item & request a digitization (scan)
Please ask your liaison librarian for assistance
The reading list can be exported to PDF, CSV or RIS (Endnote) by using the student view.
Within a QUT Readings published list (it need not be yours):
You can create a copy of a reading list and change the List Name, Hierarchy and/or Teaching Period without creating a new list from scratch.
To do so:
Note: If you require the new list to be associated with a different Hierarchy untick the Copy hierarchy associations to new list button (see screenshot below). Then follow the instructions above to assign a Hierarchy (see hyperlink).
