History | REVEL | Pearson. REVEL offers an immersive learning experience that engages students deeply in history, while giving them the flexibility to learn their way. Instead of just reading about the past, REVEL empowers students to actively participate in the exploration of history. Media interactives integrated directly within the authors’ narrative enable students to delve further into key events without breaking stride. For example, REVEL’s interactive maps highlighting territorial advancement in mid-19th-century America coupled with Thomas Corwin’s 1847 piece Against the Mexican War help students make connections between western advancement and the Mexican War. By providing opportunities to read about and thoroughly explore history in tandem, REVEL engages students deeply, which leads to a better understanding of how events and connections throughout history have shaped the world we live in today.

Q: I’ve often heard that copyright law has many exceptions when the work is being used “for educational purposes” and have always wondered what that meant. A: What you’ve described is called the Fair Use doctrine. It’s a principle that permits limited use of copyrighted material without acquiring permission from the rights holders.

The nature of the copyrighted work, the amount and substantiality of the portion taken, and the effect of the use upon the potential market are the factors of analysis outlined in copyright law. For example, if you used a small portion of a copyrighted work for nonprofit educational purposes without any harmful intention your case may qualify as fair use.

However, weighing the fair use factors is often quite subjective . If the copyright owner disagrees with your fair use interpretation the dispute may have to be resolved by a lawsuit or the college may need to remove the offending material.
