This article describes how to use Study.Net to make copyrighted materials available to your students.
Although students access Study.Net materials through Canvas, Study.Net is a separate service that manages the delivery of copyrighted materials. Materials provided by Study.Net should not appear in any files section, but can be accessed using the "Study.Net" link in the left navigation bar.
You may assemble your course materials before, during, or after you request a Canvas site, but you do not need a Canvas site to use Study.Net. Send these materials to Courseware, who will make them visible at a time you choose, and will create a link from Canvas site. (You won't need to request this link.) Please allow one business day for us to create this link.
MBA students get free access to coursepacks, but undergraduates must pay separately. TA and auditors get no access unless you specifically request it.
|TIP: Use Files, and not Study.Net, to distribute non-copyrighted materials such as class notes, slides. or syllabi. Please do not upload the same file to both Canvas and Study.Net.|
Linking to Study.Net materials
Downloading/Printing Study.Net materials
Students can download readings individually by clicking the reading title.
They will receive a PDF file of all of the readings, which they can annotate using PDF annotation software or the Study.Net app.
They can also order hard copies of these materials by selecting Click here to purchase a printed Hard Copy. Hard copy is assembled by Campus Copy for pickup at 3907 Walnut St. Philadelphia PA, 191034. They should contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions regarding hard copies.
Alternatives to Study.Net
A licensed web-based copy of certain articles may already exist in one of the Lippincott Library's databases. The Lippincott librarians can help you link to articles, both in licensed databases and in publications whose full text is hard to locate from general web searches.
Uploading other articles into Files
Redistributing certain classes of electronic documents, such as Harvard cases, is expressly forbidden by existing licensing agreements between Penn and the publisher.
The Courseware team cannot advise on whether or not it is permissible to upload an article you already have as a file, and Canvas cannot clear copyright for you. For general advice, consult Penn's Policy on Unauthorized Copying of Copyrighted Media. Additionally, the School of Arts and Sciences hosts a site about copyright and digital media in education.
