e-Learning Portal Access
U.S. copyright law (Copyright Act of 1976, Title 17 of the United States Code) and Conference on Fair Use guidelines (published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office) mandate that copyright-protected course materials posted on the Bastyr University e-Learning portal be password protected and restricted to students currently enrolled in the class. These materials include, but are not limited to, journal articles, single chapters from books and instructor-created PowerPoint presentations or other instructional tools that utilize copyright-protected materials.
To comply with copyright law and fair use guidelines, student access to current quarter course materials on the e-Learning portal is terminated at 5 p.m. on the Thursday following the close of finals week, the date for which is published in the University Catalog. Students wishing to have access to course materials must download them prior to this time.
For any distance learning courses, Bastyr University will communicate its response or evaluation to the student within approximately 14 days of the receipt of student lessons, projects or dissertations.
