The communicative language teaching approach encourages using authentic materials in real or authentic contexts. When we adopt (authentic) materials created by others in our (online) classroom, the issue of fair use has to be considered. To read more about fair use in the U.S., please check http://www.copyright.gov/fair-use/ and http://www.copyright.gov/fair-use/more-info.html. Some practical information and suggestions about fair use can be found from http://fairuse.stanford.edu/overview/fair-use/four-factors/
and https://copyright.columbia.edu/basics/fair-use/fair-use-checklist.html.

In addition to the consideration of fair use, searching for and preparation of authentic materials for pedagogical use are very often time-consuming. To save some labor, please check out the Language Materials Project website created by the University of California, Los Angeles (http://www.lmp.ucla.edu/Lessons.aspx?menu=003), which offers links and resources to quite a few languages and sample lesson plans.
We look forward to reading your ideas for scaffolding authentic materials.
