Rough Video Sample: Video 1 (Above)

This rough sample of the first video gives an idea of how the 6-video series will look. David Wheeler will be joining me as a co-host, and well be adding more improv humor. The video series will be accompanied by PowerPoints, exercises, and quizzes (below).

Proposal Summary

Many students need to know who to acquire media legally for use in projects and professional work such as social media, remixing, web publishing, journalism, video production, online presentations, and other media productions. Yet, few faculty have the time to teach it in the curriculum.

In 2018, Juliet Davis received a Learning Enrichment Grant to create what she thought would be a single PowerPoint and video on "Copyright, Copyleft, and Fair Use." 
However, a larger project emerged.


This project will be a 6-part training series of entertaining videos (with the PowerPoints, exercises, and quizzes) that teach students how to use a wide range of media and easily understand the complexities of copyright law as it applies to their practical circumstances.


David Wheeler has joined the project as an improv actor, voiceover, and collaborator.

STIPENDS:   Juliet Davis $1500
                     David Wheeler $1500
