Instructor Delivery Requirements
There are a variety of tasks beyond the facilitation of learning activities that need to be performed by the instructor before, during, and after an online class offering. This page provides a list of those essential Class Maintenance: Technical & Administrative tasks in a timeline presentation, as well as helpful links for further guidance.
At the bottom of this page, you will also find key information regarding Copyright of online courses, and the related responsibilities of USask instructors.
Class Maintenance: Technical & Administrative
What follows is a schedule of maintenance tasks to be completed as part of your appointment as the class instructor. Click to expand each section.
The ongoing work required of maintaining copyright compliance is the responsibility of the instructor — just as it is in a face-to-face class. The DEU will work with instructors of new developments to ensure their class is copyright compliant; however, beyond that initial development you are responsible for copyright compliance when making any changes to the class content. This includes:
- New readings or other materials added to the class, or library licenses for existing readings change from term-to-term.
- New images added to the class; note that this includes images that might be embedded within another file, such as an instructor-made PowerPoint.
- New information added to the class content that requires proper referencing.
To request a copy of the copyright clearances list (spreadsheet) created during the initial development of a class, please contact DEU.
For more information regarding the responsibilities of instructors and available resources to assist you, please visit usask.ca/copyright or contact the Copyright Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 306-966-8817.
