The Educator Collaborative’s Study Series “Group Viewing Video License”

Simple Language Version

By registering for a Study Series seat, The Educator Collaborative is granting you the limited right to view the Sessions you have registered for and invite colleagues to sit with you. We are granting this in an effort to promote collaboration and professional learning amongst you and your colleagues. We believe we learn best together. Here we outline what this means in simple language. Note that there are a number of limits to what you can and can’t do, we are doing this to protect your purchase, the work of presenters and our organization.

With this License you may:

  • Invite colleagues from your own school or organization to bring chairs and sit with you while watching the live or recording of the Session(s) you have registered for. This could be a small or large group, but must be colleagues from you employing school or organization.

There are limits to this License, which include:

  • The Educator Collaborative and/or session presenters own all copyrights and reserve all rights to the content presented.
  • You may only share with colleagues from your school or organization.
    • For example: You may invite your grade level team or even entire department to watch with you. However, you may not travel to other schools or districts and show all or part of the recording.
  • This License is single organization or single school-based and does not extend to a full district. Any school interested in Group Viewing would need to register for a seat.
  • You may not charge any fee of any kind for others to view with you.
    • For example: You may not sell tickets, ask for a donation, or be in the midst of conducting business for any school or organization other than your employer (such as performing consulting or speaking work).
  • You may not record, download, or otherwise save for future use all or any portion of any Session’s video, including live and recorded formats.
  • You may not broadcast or rebroadcast beyond the provided live stream or provided recording log-ins.
    • For example: You may have your grade level colleagues pull up a chair and sit next to you in a classroom to watch. However, you may not broadcast your live stream to screens throughout your district. You also may not record a broadcast on your own device and show that recording to others.
  • You may not share your log-in information for live stream or recordings with anyone.
  • For the purposes of this License we define “colleagues” as employees of the same school or organization of which you are also employed.
    • For example: Fourth grades teachers from your school are considered “colleagues” you can share with. However, independent contractors that work with your school, teachers from a neighboring district, or students in colleague course you teach are not considered “colleagues.”

If you have any questions or a unique situation you would like to discuss, please contact us.

Failure to comply with the expectations set forth herein may result in any or all of the following, including but not limited to: canceled registration without refund; canceled registrations for any offerings for other members of the same organization, school, or district; legal action.
