Copyright Matters!Copyright Matters! is a publication outlining the conditions and limits of fair dealing for education under the Copyright Act.

All WCDSB staff and students should read the guidelines before using copyright-protected works (photos, videos, music, etc.) to be sure their use is allowed and to make sure you give proper credit to the creator of the material you are using.

For more information, see the WCDSB’s Copyright Policy APO011.


Looking for a copyright-friendly source of images to use in educational activities?

Britannica ImageQuest

Britannica ImageQuest gives WCDSB staff and students access to millions of rights-cleared images.

Criterion-on-Demand videos, available through our Learn360 video database, offers access to popular feature films. These films:

  • Can be used in classrooms, after school, or for fundraising but not for private at-home viewing
  • Users can stream or download titles
  • Titles can be requested, if available.

Since some videos have mature content, only staff can access these videos using a special username and password, available from your school's library staff.

To see what's available,

  1. Log in to Learn360 with the username/password provided by your library staff.
  2. Go to the drop-down menu in the upper left corner and scroll down to the bottom where it says “Premium Content: Criterion on Demand.”

Criterion on Demand Drop Down Menu

To find feature films appropriate for your students’ grade level:

1. Go to Advanced Search beside the search box.
2. Under the Search Options dropdown list choose Criterion on Demand.

3. Under Select Filters choose the appropriate grade under that filter option. If necessary, choose the required language filter to only get results in that language.
