Learn how to locate and identify licensed materials online to use in your own teaching and presentations.

When placing teaching and presentation materials into an open environment, e.g. outside of the closed classroom and up onto the web, we need to ensure that we are using openly licensed materials AND that we are providing correct attribution (this is as important as being able to correctly cite a paper).

In this session you will be invited to develop short visual presentations by locating and using openly licensed content. You will be guided through the process of finding, reusing, and sharing open content, learning about licenses along the way.

The session will cover:

  • The differences between Open Access, Open Educational Resources, Copyright materials, and Licensed materials. 
  • How to identify licensed materials and which licences suit various type of usage.
  • How to search on a variety of platforms for licensed materials (e.g. Google, Flickr, Vimeo, Wikimedia Commons).
  • How to correctly attribute materials that you have used. 

  • All staff
