Goals of This Guide

  • show profs where to get images (and other media) for their slideshows (or other course materials)
    • so that their course materials are suitable for publishing online as an OER (such as OCW)
  • approach from the angle of making life easier for professors. this is all about them having to worry _less_ about copyright issues
  • super duper simple and step-by-step and brief and approachable
  • eventually we're going to turn this into a pamphlet thing

On With The Show

This is a guide for professors who want to use outside material (images, video, text, etc) in their course materials without having to worry about copyright infringement. This makes it easy to share your course materials with others inside and outside of the university without legal worries.

ccSearch: use this to search more broadly, but be careful. For example, the google results will have one cc license on them, but not necessarily everything on the page/site is cc-ed http://search.creativecommons.org/#

notes/discussion

this is useful as part of implementing OCW. professors need to be taught how to use openly licensed images in their slideshow presentations so that their slideshows can be put online.

" get your images from a flickr cc search or wikimedia commons. not google images. here are the links, and here (briefly) is why it matters. also, here is how to openly license and publish images of your own. "

let's flesh this out!

Why Does Copyright Matter To Me? -Teaching -Creating

What Is Copyright? -[quick definition]

How Does Copyright Affect Me? -Unless you teach only public domain material, your courses are going to use copyrighted material. When you assign readings, add images to lecture slides or assign papers, copyright is going to be involved. Luckily, copyright has an exception of sorts which allows teachers a wide breadth to pursue their educational mission.

What Is Fair Use? -[defintion]
