Digital Awareness and Protection

Awareness of the underlying principles of intellectual property (IP) is critical to any digital communications plan. Determine who owns rights to digital assets and discover both the opportunities and risks associated with content sharing in a public or private space. Explore best practices, proper attribution requirements, Creative Commons licensing, and the application of copyright law.

This course can be applied to the UBC Certificate in Digital Content and Communications.

Course Format

This course is offered in two formats: in-class and 100% online. Please note we may not offer both formats every term.

In-class: Our in-class courses are designed to  encourage participants to take an active role in content discussions and class presentations. Courses are offered throughout the year, are approximately four weeks in length, and are held on-site at UBC Robson Square, downtown Vancouver.

Online: Our online courses are structured to provide a positive learning environment for participants to engage in and interact with the content and other participants, as well as with the online tutor – an industry professional. Tutors facilitate the learning throughout the course and are available to provide feedback and guidance as you navigate through the content. Courses are delivered online over approximately six weeks and involve an average of six-to-ten hours of study per week.

Prior to 4pm PST on the start date of the course, an email will be sent to all registered participants containing instructions on how to access the online course.
