  • People have asked me about making slides and doing presentations these questions.

    Can you copy and paste for slides in a presentation? Yes, providing its linked or its obvious where is comes from and your presentation is about someone or somewhere else's work or information.

    Is that plagiarism? The answer would have to be no especially when you leave in the links and you link to where it comes from. Slides are part of computing and come from computers. However plagiarism would be copying someones else's slides outright and making out you made them.

    Your Presentation should be set out by yourself and then in a sense its your work showing others work linked. The information linked should be set out bu yourself.

    In an Essay for example its a completely different story. Maybe Essays of the future will all be linked and therefore referenced.

    Links are References
    Are you sure you want to  Yes  No

  9. 9. What is a Link?<br />In computing, a hyperlink (or link) is a reference to a document that the reader can directly follow, or that is followed automatically.<br />The term "hyperlink" was coined in 1965 (or possibly 1964) by Ted Nelson and his assistant Calvin Curtin at the start of Project Xanadu. Nelson had been inspired by "As We May Think," a popular essay by VannevarBush.<br /><br />
