Our new elearning platform, Canvas, promises to take the student learning experience to a whole new level.  To help you find quality resources, library staff have been redesigning the library webpage, making it even easier to access databases, catalogues, ebooks, videos, specialised subject guides, and much more.  If you would like to get creative, we have Adobe Creative Suite available, and of course, we can also help you with Copyright issues.  You only have to ask!

Create Your Own

There are heaps of resources online for your class.  Videos, images, music,..the list goes on.  However if you can't find the perfect video, maybe it's time to create your own.?  It's worth a thought. Grab a video camera and a tripod from the library and record some real life scenarios.  You can edit your blockbuster using Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects, and upload it to Youtube or Vimeo, or to your Canvas site. 



Videos for the classroom

We have a huge range of online videos available for class use through our subscription to ClickView and Safety Care.  Your students can even watch them from home via our library webpage, just with their student logon.  Stay tuned for more exciting news...

Copyright-the dangers are real!

We have a legal and moral obligation to copyright holders if we choose to use their work. If you have concerns or questions about copyright, we can point you in the right direction.   
Understanding Copyright is a short course provided by the library, and is available on Canvas.  It will introduce you to the basics of copyright for teachers at TasTAFE, and show you what you CAN do for your classes, rather then telling you everything you CAN'T do. We are going to try and make copyright as painless as possible, by showing you what you need to do to stay within copyright and by giving you lots of places to go to get things you can use in class without having to worry about copyright (yes, these magical places DO exist!)
