Face to Face (f2f) teaching and online teaching are classified differently under US Copyright law.  US Copyright Law. Section 110 (1) allows for the performance or display of a work that is under copyright by an in person instructor with in person pupils in a classroom for educational purposes.  The US Copyright law views online classes differently. Depending on how much of a copyrighted work you show in your class and for what purpose you might need to secure public performance rights.
