Teachers and students: Are you wondering how to correctly use images and video in your projects?

Not all images and video can be used in your school projects. Some have strict copyright protection. It is best to use material designated under Creative Commons that the creators have decided to share with the public. This short video by Rodd Lucier explains how to do this.

If you are doing a search on Google Images, make sure that you specify that you would only like to see Creative Commons material for your subject.

Go to advanced search and choose the section entitled "Date, usage rights, etc". Then choose "free to use share or modify". This will give you images that you can use in your projects. You will still need to credit the creator, but you will not be breaking copyright. Try out this type of search.

Bonne journée!
