I am creating an online class for a fee.  It will consist of  power point presentations and recorded scripts.  The written bullets are my own words, but much of the recorded script is read from books article, etc.  I have complete references for all my matrial listed at the end of each module, however I do not state the reference as I am speaking.  All of the information is medical factual infomation.  I this a copyright violation?

At some point, quoting verbatim from a textbook will constitute copyright infringement.  In the abstract (and even with all the facts), it can be difficult to assess when that line is crossed.
Is there a reason why you can't read the textbooks and then present the information in your own words?  That's always a safer approach.
