WISL Courseware Copyright Management

WISL Courseware/Copyright Management is a browser based solution that runs on a web server which interfaces interactively with the server that hosts the retail management system. Tightly coupled with the system that procures textbooks it controls the process of acquiring copyright permission and generating copies of course source material for distribution through a retail facility.

WISL Courseware/Copyright Management consists of three modules which may be acquired in any combination: Courseware Administration which helps to manage the duplication and distribution of courseware source material; Copyright Tracking which controls the process of acquiring copyright permission and On Demand Printing which includes specific facilities to handle the requirements of data collection and reporting for the Expresso Book Machine

bulletWISL Courseware/Copyright Management(C/CM)

Installation Preparation

There are many files that must be established to accomplish the courseware/copyright management activities performed by C/CM. Principal among these are the copyright vendor file, the courseware file and the course pack file.

C/CM initiates the addition of a new textbook record on the retail management system when a new courseware file record is added and these textbook records are maintained on an on-going basis through a transactional interface between the two systems. The course pack file is an index of courseware records that are included in the course material required by a specific academic course.
