When lectures go online, who gets to keep the copyright?


The reservations paused by teaching staff in universities brings a whole
new perspective to recorded lectures.

I once had a meeting with the former VC of Virtual University of Uganda –
Prof Michele Lejeune, and 2 things that he said to me still ring in my head
to date:-
1. If a lecturer’s course content remains static for 2 semesters then he /
she has no business teaching that unit. Education is dynamic, you cannot
use the same content year in year out!
2. Lectures MUST allocate a LIVE SESSION every week to discuss with
students (mandatory to attend) the content that was to be covered that week.

Taking ONLY these 2 points into consideration, it would be foolhardy for
any learning institution to feel that it can replace student – teacher
interaction with recorded lectures.

Having said that, I think the lecturer and universities have to put the
student first as he / she is the reason behind the existence of the
institution and the creation of the teaching job. However, universities
need to be sensitive to teachers’ rights.

My 2 cents 😊
