Publishers may provide material such as test banks, case studies, PowerPoint slides, and images to instructors accompanying a textbook adopted for a course. These need the publisher’s permission before use in Canvas.
Teaching staff should contact your publishing representative and ask them to email you confirmation that the instructors' resources can be used in your Canvas course. Keep a copy of the email as proof of permission.
Teaching staff must seek copyright permission when taking screenshots from the web to use in teaching materials. When you take a screenshot of a webpage multiple copyright works and other elements (images, text, advertising, logos) are reproduced.

Photos, diagrams and images from published sources, such as books, journal articles, and the web must be registered with eReserve - why?
RMIT University is bound by an educational licence with the Copyright Agency that sets out how RMIT University staff can use images for learning and teaching purposes. Once the images have been registered, they can be used across the University for learning and teaching purposes in any authenticated teaching technology.
Note: Images that are Creative Commons licensed, or where website terms allow educational use, do not need to be registered with eReserve.
