Communicating means making copyright material available online or electronically transmitting copyright material.

'Making material available online' can include uploading material to a digital space for student access and use via password protected access such as:

  • a shared drive/intranet (eg Microsoft 365); or
  • content or learning management systems (eg Moodle, Blackboard, Brightspace or Equella); or
  • to a closed class area on an education platform (eg Edmodo, Verso, Google Classroom or iTunes U).

'Electronic transmission' includes emailing, streaming or using an electronic reticulation system to share material (eg, libraries might have an electronic delivery system to transmit material centrally).
