WHAT IS THIS?
This is a very simple, HTML- and jQuery-based Fair Use Analysis tool created for Emerson College. This was a collaboration between Information Technology, the Instructional Technology Group, the Library, and Media Services. It is an attempt at addressing a critical issue for media usage in educational settings: how do we stick within the guidelines of Fair Use? This is especially difficult when sharing content online.
Currently this tool lives at Emerson here: http://fairuse.emerson.edu/
How do I use it?
Clone it, change some of the proper nouns and other verbage, give us (Emerson College) a shout out on it, and tell people about it.
