Does a teacher still get paid?

If they are no longer around?

Yes! What kind of question is that...

Artist's kids get royalties.

Did you read the article? I doubt the deceased professor's estate/survivors are getting paid despite the work he did still being used for online courses long after his death.

He should! That's what I meant to say - I am roasting steaks

That said, people sell their webinars, I think the uni owns them, actually. I gotta get another 4TB storage, looks like.

you didn't wonder about the connection of roasting steaks?

You know with MC you gotta be imaginative. She wants to divide the steaks in bites and store them ....

Teacher's create modules for their employer, those are property of the school, stored on their virtual media.

If you are a teacher and want to own your live courses, they will take up a monster amount of space.

Merci, I thought so.

I feel for students who all of a sudden realize that their online professor has passed away a while back. Even in distance learning or impersonal large classes in my experience one creates a mental inner dialogue with one's tutor, it's part of learning.

But then if the school still sells those, the prof must have been great, I take it.

Re: Does a teacher still get paid?

I've thought this over since reading it yesterday, and in a way these video lectures could be seen as textbooks - the lecturer is the "author", so really should have the same rights as the author of a textbook which is used for a course. So, royalties for each time it's "sold" (or, as in this case, used in a course). Since the uni is then the publisher, they'd keep their cut ...

Thanks. If I ever create an online course, I'll record a small video announcing my death to be played at the start of the course... or at the end as the final twist!
