• content or learning management systems (eg Moodle, Blackboard, Brightspace or Equella)
• to a closed class area on an education platform (eg Edmodo, Verso or Google Classroom).

‘Electronic transmission’ includes emailing, streaming or using an electronic reticulation system to share material (eg libraries might have an electronic delivery system to transmit material centrally).
