Welcome to the course
This course has been designed especially for librarians, ICT and support staff at universities and colleges in Myanmar. It may also be of interest to educators, students and administrative staff. This course will introduce you to why copyright is important and how freely available materials that give you explicit permission to use in different ways could be useful for your colleagues and students.
The Transformation by Innovation in Distance Education (TIDE) project enriched distance learning in Myanmar by building the capacity of Higher Education staff and students, enhancing programmes of study, and strengthening systems that support Higher Educational Institutions (HEI) in Myanmar. TIDE was part of the UK-Aid-funded Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education Innovation and Reform (SPHEIR) programme(www.spheir.org.uk). SPHEIR is managed on behalf of FCDO by a consortium led by the British Council that includes PwC and Universities UK International. The TIDE project closed in May 2021.
