Using Web Technologies in the Discipline of Law and Informatics
AbstractThis article discusses the use of the new technologies of the information and communication (ICT) and web tools in the teaching/learning of the discipline Law and Informatics of the Course of Law of the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC) in Brazil. At present there is an interest on the part of the teachers and the students to understand this work methodology, and the best approach to the interface of student/computer/teacher in a virtual environment of learning. The attending class has as function, besides the personal contact with the student, to prepare strategies that will be used in the virtual environment. In the discipline we see the beginnings of encouraging the use of the virtual environment and learning is shown to be profitable, as it will be seen in the presented elements. The student can take his experience of this discipline for the other disciplines in their law course, as well as for his academic apprenticeship and for the work environment, already as a professional of Law. The approach of the technology, in a guided way, helps the student to look for also in the virtual way, new borders and solutions for their problems.
EJLT is an open access journal, aiming to disseminate academic work and perspectives as widely as possible to the benefit of the author and the author’s readers. It is the assumption of the EJLT that authors who publish in the journal wish their work to be available as freely and as widely as possible through the open access publishing channel.
Authors who publish with EJLT will retain copyright and moral rights in the underlying work but will grant all users the rights to copy, store and print for non-commercial use copies of their work. Commercial mirroring may also be carried out with the consent of the journal. The work must remain as published – without redaction or editing – and must clearly state the identity of the author and the originating EJLT url of the article. Any commercial use of the author’s work - apart from mirroring - requires the permission of the author and any aspects of the article which are the property of EJLT (e.g. typographical format) requires permission from EJLT.
Authors can sometimes become no longer contactable (through, for example, death or retirement). If this occurs, any rights in the work will pass to the European Journal of Law and Technology which will continue to make the work available in as wide a manner as possible to achieve the aims of open access and ensuring that an author's work continues to be available. An author - or their estate - can recover these rights from EJLT by providing contact information.
The European Journal of Law and Technology holds rights in format, publication and dissemination.
EJLT, as a non-commercial organisation - which receives donations to allow it to continue publishing – must retain information on reader access to journal articles. This means that we will not give permission to mirror the journal unless we can be provided with full details as to reader access to each and every journal article. We prefer and encourage deep linking rather than mirroring. Encouragement is thus given for all users – commercial and non-commercial – to provide indexes and links to articles in the EJLT where the index or link points to the location of the article on the EJLT server, rather than to stored copies on other servers.
Please contact the European Journal of Law and Technology if you are in any doubt as to what this statement of use covers.
