Just back from two talks at the Hybrid Learning Consortium held at The Barstow School in Kansas City June 11 & 12. It was neat! Educators & administrators from independent K-12 schools around the world attended & traded ideas, tips and techniques for hybrid and blended learning. This is the future of education.

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been invited to speak to the faculty of NSU this week. As you may know, they have an extensive online curriculum, and I’ll discuss copyright, Fair Use, and especially the application of the TEACH Act to distance learning. – MJD

Northeastern University - College of Professional Studies

This week I’m honored to be a guest online facilitator for Northeastern’s graduate level class “Legal and Intellectual Property Issues for Distance Learning”. It’s only been a day, and the students’ questions are keeping me on my toes.
What I’ve learned so far is that educators have a real need for clear & practical copyright information. - - - MJD
