So many resources are now being freely shared online that it can be advantageous for teachers and students to develop an understanding of appropriate and legal use. This episode identifies different types of online resources including scholarly material available online through libraries, and highlights copyright considerations for using existing material from the Internet in your teaching. It also discusses the benefits of Open Educational Resources (OER), where teachers can freely access and contribute to a wide range of learning and teaching resources from institutions around the world.

I use these videos in the e-learning module of the University of Bristol's Teaching and Learning in Higher Education programme. Part of the module allows academics to explore areas of e-learning that interest them, and this excellent selection of video case studies offers a range of examples of practice. Staff can explore individual cases which they are encouraged to analyse in terms of why technology is being used, what are the benefits and potential issues. This reflection is then used to help inform their own planning of a technology-enhanced learning activity.
