Abstract: Universities play an important role to promote, transfer and commercialise intellectual property in the knowledge-based economy. This study aims to evaluate the perceived learning outcomes and challenges based on a self-made short video clip project. Under the project, students produced short video clips by themselves to explain economic concepts and then registered the short video clip at the intellectual property corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO) in Sarawak. Using a sample of undergraduate students who took introductory economics courses at the Universiti Teknologi MARA, Cawangan Sarawak over the period September 2019 to January 2020 period, our results show that the overall mean score of perceived learning outcomes on copyright was 3.86 suggesting positive response from respondents. Respondents also confronted finance, time and procedure challenges in producing short video clips and registering their copyright. We offer several suggestions on improving quality of digital innovation and promoting importance of copyright amongst tertiary students.
