The Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT in collaboration with the Harvard Law School, the HarvardX distance-learning initiative, and the Berkman Center for Internet and Society is organizing an online learning course, CopyrightX from Monday, January 26, 2015 to April 25, 2015. The course is a twelve-week networked course on copyright law which uses a combination of pre-recorded lectures, online and face-face discussions, and live webcasts to engage students. Each week, participants in CopyrightX will be expected to watch an 80-minute recorded lecture, read the assigned material, participate in an asynchronous online discussion of the issues presented by the lecture and the readings, and attend an 80-minute synchronous discussion section conducted via video, audio, and text chat. In four of the twelve weeks, there will be a Special Event on Wednesday with guest speakers. Participants will be expected to watch a live or recorded version of each Special Event. CopyrightX is intended to give participants a deeper understanding and knowledge of copyright law and its related issues. Having its foundation rooted in creative commons, this course is free and open to anyone 18 years and older. However, due to the limited number of participants required per year, applications would be carefully scrutinized. Participants are required to pay an amount of GHS300 for registration, snacks and incidentals for the 12-week duration. To obtain a certificate of completion, participants must both pass the exam and attend at least 10 of the 12 weekly discussion sections. No legal background is required. Interested persons should register latest by Monday, January 12, 2015 Please do not apply unless you can commit to participating fully in the course.
