Appropriate Use of Course Materials

Think before you share or post online!

Your course materials are provided to you based on your registration in a class, and any materials created by your professors and instructors are protected by copyright law. This includes exams, lecture slides and other course notes. Additionally, other copyright-protected materials created by textbook publishers and authors may be provided to you based on contracts, licences and educational exceptions in the Canadian Copyright Act.

If permission from the copyright holder is not acquired before posting their material online, this activity could be considered a copyright infringement. Other distribution of your course materials without copyright permission – for example, distributing materials by e-mail – may also be an instance of copyright infringement.

You may not post course materials to notesharing websites such as CourseHero & OneClass.

Students are bound by College policies, including AC100-22 Intellectual Property, and SL100-02 Student Code of Conduct, and any student found to be using or posting course materials or recordings for public dissemination without permission and/or inappropriately is in breach of these policies and may be sanctioned.
