Outschool question

Recommended Posts

I believe someone could have the students buy the book and use it as the text for the class, but using at as the basis for a course without having the students purchase it seems like plagiarism to me. One of the questions from this guide from Penn is,


Is my use "transformative;" in other words, am I interpreting the material, placing it in a new light or context, or using it for something different than the original author?

Yes, it is possible to teach SOTW from Outschool.  The students need to have copies of the student materials, whether they acquire them themselves or the teacher purchases a license to distribute the student materials to the students digitally.  

The copyright, purchase, and licensing description is in this FAQ from the WTM Press Help Center.
