Access to web-based course materials, including but not limited to podcasts and streamed material, where Monash is the Copyright Owner, is based on the following levels:
Level 1. Open public access. This may only be material which Monash owns or has an appropriate licence to use and where publication will not breach information privacy. Staff publishing such material must observe copyright and privacy restrictions. Level 1 access applies to unit online reading lists (not linked to full text material).
Level 2. Monash staff and students only. This applies to Lectures Online content.
Level 3. Students enrolled in and staff teaching specific units.
Level 4. Nominated individuals or groups requiring access to the teaching and learning resources/sites or materials for the purposes of collaboration, research, or other joint activities under a legal agreement.
All units must have at least one page at public access level to enable students to make an informed choice on unit selection.
Where staff enter into contractual partnerships and/or arrangements with other organisations,
a) these must be governed by an agreement drafted by the University Solicitor's Office, and
b) this agreement must specify conditions of access to learning materials in all media.
This agreement is subject to Australian law.
The University will implement access levels (as defined in 1-4 above), bearing in mind the types of course material made available within units offered by the faculty. The levels of access provided will reflect the above considerations about third party copyright and privacy.
Copyright warning notices and statements must be included with course material including recorded lectures, print materials and Monash-owned materials.
