Starter Kit: Suggested Syllabus Statement

EMU’s legal counsel recommends that instructors planning to use podcasts in their teaching insert the following statement into their syllabus:

During the semester, the instructor may create and use podcasts in this course. The podcasts and related materials are owned by the instructor and/or the University and may only be used by students in regard to this course. In using the podcasts and related materials, students must comply with all pertinent University policies and procedures, including the university’s Acceptable Use Policy. The podcasts and related materials may not be copied, distributed, shared, modified, or used for any other purpose without the prior written consent of the Instructor and/or the University.

The purpose of this statement is to disclose the fact that podcasts may be created and disseminated during your course. Use of this statement is optional and is recommended.
