Unless the image was created by you, Rasmussen College, a government agency, or is covered by a Creative Commons license that allows for commercial use (CC BY, CC BY-SA, or CC BY-ND), the image is most likely copyright protected. Obtaining permission from the copyright holder is recommended before including the image in a course.
The Copyright Toolkit includes:
- instructions for obtaining permission to use a copyright-protected image in a course
- a "Permission Request" form to use when requesting permission from the copyright holder
Consult the Images page in the Toolkit to view:
- typical scenarios and recommendations
- a flow chart to guide decision-making
- links to resources that provide access to copyright-compliant images
The Copyright Toolkit is an excellent resource for Rasmussen Faculty. Use the Toolkit to learn more about copyright and to answer specific questions about the use of resources within Rasmussen courses.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with additional questions about the Toolkit or the Permission Request Form.
Contact email@example.com if you have reviewed the content in the Copyright Toolkit, but still have a question about the use of a specific resource in your course.
