Vacancy student assistant Easy Access – Check for copyrighted material

As a student, you are probably aware that there are rules and restrictions regarding the use of copyrighted material. These rules also apply to universities and lecturers when using study materials. The UT’s policy in this is to link to online sources when possible. To ensure that we (the UT) properly handle copyrighted material and avoid high fines for the UT and the faculty, we need to check all Canvas sites on the use of copyrighted material.

To do this job, I am looking for student assistants.

Follwowing is a brief description of the tasks you can expect.

  • Checking canvas sites of BMS subjects for the use of copyrighted material;
  • Search for alternative solutions, (e.g. links to online sources etc.);
  • Register all information about the course and the use of copyrighted material found on the canvas site and possible solutions;
  • Keep in contact with the course lecturers and discuss your findings. (Advice for changes and improvements);
  • Implementing changes (after consulting the lecturer);

The expected time investment is about 15 hours per month. This of course also depends on your availability. If you are interested in this job, please contact Mieke van der Meulen at m.g.vandermeulen@utwente.nl
