Participation Policies

Participation Policies

  • The Webcast Academy is a 'hands on, open content, collaborative community'.   Information is shared freely and a helping hand is provided as much as possible, but everyone is responsible for their own learning .  Participants are expected to take initiative and make some effort to seek answers on their own before asking for help.  
     
  • While The Webcast Academy's primary mission is to provide training for potential Worldbridges Webcasters, participation is open all those who agree to abide by community policies and procedures. We reserve the right to reject or terminate access to any member and/or remove any published content that violates these policies. 
     
  • The Webcast Academy does not charge any fees, but we do ask that interns 'pay it forward' in some way by helping future Academy participants and sharing what you learn here with others.  
     
  •  Webcasting has many variables and can present complex, frustrating challenges. Those that have built the Academy thusfar have done their best to share lessons learned, but the Academy is a very imperfect place. Materials you see and advice you receive may not be entirely accurate or up-to-date. Please keep in mind that all the resources here and all the help you might receive are offered freely. If you encounter 'imperfections', do not simply complain or expect others to fix it - attempt to be part of the solution. 
     
  • As part of Worldbridges, we strive to build a diverse, inclusive community. As such,  Webcast Academy  members  represent a number of different cultures and backgrounds. Academy participants are asked to show sensitivity toward and tolerance of different  values and norms and civility should be maintained at all times.
     
  • Those whose webcasting interests involve commercial, religious, or political activities are welcome to participate as long as these interests are made transparent and do not violate any other policies. Spam-like activities will not be tolerated. 
     
  • Any personal conflicts that arise out of Academy participation should be dealt with outside of the community.  Academy participants agree not to defame, harass, abuse, threaten or defraud other members of the community. Any such incidents should be reported to the management team.
     
  • In situations where profanity, sexual content, or descriptions of graphic violence are used, those uses should be clearly noted at the beginning of  any archived media and in its metadata.  In cases where such content is likely to occur during a live webcast, the introduction should note this fact. 
     
  • Webcasts and any other community content shall not promote any illegal activity, including but not limited to the violation of copyright law. 
     
  • By participating in the community, Webcast Academy members acknowledge that their contributions may be recorded and distributed by the community. This includes the member's text contributions to chats and forums, voice conversations or other audio, video, shared images or screen captures, and content in any other media supplied by the participant. No remuneration for these contributions shall be provided by The Webcast Academy or Worldbridges.  All materials produced at the Academy are released with at Creative Commons Attribution, Sharealike, Non-commercial (or less restrictive) license.
     
  • Webcast Academy participants are responsible for the content of their own contributions to the community and its shows. Any expressed opinions, viewpoints, endorsements, or recommendations are solely those of the contributor. Webcast Academy does not assume any liability for content produced by its members
     
  • As a Worldbridges community, all Worldbridges Terms of Use apply to participation in The Webcast Academy
