Free Graphics, Audio, and Video for Education
Date and time: Wednesday, March 7, 2018, noon CST
Just because it’s on the internet doesn’t mean it’s free! In this interactive webinar, you’ll learn where you can find graphics, audio, and video for your teaching that you can reuse while respecting creators’ copyright. We’ll go over the basics of Creative Commons licenses and what it means when something is “open.” You’ll learn how to use Google Images and other sources to find open and licensed images, and you’ll come away with the basics of how these images may be reused and adapted, legally and guilt-free!
