Abstract: The laws of copyright are frequently broken by misuse, misunderstanding, and misinformed members of education. An optional activity to assist in instruction of copyright law is to use constructive learning environments. The Educational Arbitrator is a cognitive tool whose purpose is to teach copyright through using authentic task or scenarios. The multimedia product employs many of Jonassen's recommendations for constructive learning environments. In this paper, we recommend using a cognitive tool to motivate and facilitate students to learn copyright law in a manner over rote memorization of the law.
