Choosing the correct file type here will override that.
e.g. 'student_handout'This will be the name of the downloaded file. By default
the system will generate this based on the title you specified and the type of file. If you
specify a name here it will over-ride the automatically generated name. This is generally only
useful when uploading file of a type not recognized by the system (not in the list of
file types above). In that situation choose File Type: Unknown Binary and include the appropriate
suffix in the file name here. e.g. myfile.m3z
Avoid spaces or special characters in the file names.
(You)Someone else -- Describe below.
A short description of where the material came from. Include names and institutions of authors and contributors as well as acknowledgment of any work from which this was derived.
The creator/copyright holder must have agreed to allow distribution of this file through this site. If you are the creator we strongly encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option.
If none of the above licenses apply describe the conditions under
which this material appears on this site as well as any information
about reuse beyond this site.
Distributing information on the web generally requires the permission of the copyright holder--usually the original creator. Providing the information we request here will help visitors to this site understand the ways in which they may (legally) use what they find.
If you created this file (and haven't signed away your copyright) then we'd encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option. You'll retain the copyright to your file and can do as you please with it in the future.
Through this choice you are also explicitly allowing others to reuse that file as long as they give you attribution, and don't use it for commercial purposes.
If the file (or content within it) was created by others you'll need their permission. If it predates 1923 or was created by a U.S federal employee (as part of their job) it is likely in the public domain (and we can all do as we choose with it). The original author may also have explicitly stated how it may be reused (e.g. through a creative commons license). You can describe the licensing/reuse situation in the box above.
Without permission you should not upload the file. There are several options in this case:
The Stanford Copyright and Fair Use Center has more good information about copyright as it applies to academic settings.

inviting and incorporating diverse participation, drawing from a wide range of disciplines;
creating a space where people can see how their work interacts and overlaps across disciplines;
encouraging discussion in order to identify key questions regarding change in higher education;
featuring both early and mature projects, which may focus on outcomes as well as processes and contexts of change;
creating an opportunity for team formation and development, encouraging team builders to consider levels of power and buy-in as needed for change;
