Giving credit to content contributors?
Hello all! I want to hear your experiences with using content in your e-learning that was provided to you by a 3rd party.
For example, you're building a lesson on how to obtain a business loan, and a banker from ABC bank creates a checklist that you can include as a downloadable item. My questions:
1) Would you format the checklist to look like all of your other checklists you have created in the past (colors, fonts, images, etc.)? Assume the program was multiple lessons for which you have already created your own downloadable content.
2) Would you leave the banker's logo on the document? Or would that confuse the learner since your own logo shows up throughout the course?
3) Would you just give them small credits at the bottom? If yes, how? (e.g. Content was created by John Smith of ABC bank in Chicago, IL)?
4) Do you need some sort of form signed by the banker saying that he agrees for you to use this content and releases any future benefit?
I'm just trying to look for best practices around this matter.
