Whereas intellectual property rights and future use of courses is an area of great concern to faculty developing technology mediated or online courses, and

Whereas the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges has recently published two major position papers in this area, and

Whereas those papers recommend that faculty establish policy and/or contract language that provides protection that goes beyond the legal minimum pertaining in the corporate world,


Resolved that the Academic Senate advise local senates that, until suitable protection has been agreed to locally in policy and/or contract language, faculty should use an external server to create, store, and access any course material that they develop rather than use college electronic resources.

Status Report: 

A letter transmitting the resolution was sent to local senates.
