before choosing what media

better with multimedia. Use of
such is highly recommended.
Making use of media is not
equal to spending a lot. There
are media formats or types
which costs zero or just a little.

accessible, be vigilant enough
about copyright infringement
Start teaching bits and pieces
of copyright and plagiarism to
avoid such issues in the future.
