Solutions for Virtual Classrooms

In the rush to implement remote learning, teachers and other educational professionals shared digital copies of materials with students. However, schools are obliged to comply with more complex copyright restrictions when sharing digital versions of textbooks and other sources. As virtual education becomes the norm, institutions will need long-term strategies for limiting the distribution of copyrighted content. The good news is, online learning almost always involve known user identities, so is well-suited to DRM.

Instant Accessibility, Complete Control

FileOpen's solutions have been used for corporate training and higher-education applications for over twenty years. A number of companies exist today only because they were able to control access to their proprietary materials using FIleOpen DRM.

  • Share course materials securely with a defined user list
