Digital Rights Management
The iQity Digital Rights Management (DRM) system not only tracks which schools are using which courses or learning objects, but also controls who has access to certain elements within the iQity Reactor Repository.
The DRM system protects the intellectual property of iQity partners who provide curriculum, courses, and other learning objects through the Reactor Repository.
This system also ensures that each school is invoiced the appropriate amount for the items used, and that each of the providers receives the correct compensation. Similarly, the DRM system also is the mechanism that enables state organizations – such as Departments of Education – to retain a percentage of each sale, providing the potential to make the entire iQity implementation cost-neutral, if not revenue-generating.
In addition, the DRM system is what ensures that teachers within each school have access to only approved and authorized courses and learning objects.
