Finding Free Stuff


Published on

edna workshop session 2009. Many educators are looking to the Web to make the sharing of learning resources 'free and easy'. This presentation addresses questions such as: What does free mean? Where do I find this stuff? How good is it? And what can I do with it?
As well as highlighting how to find open education resources, images and media, the session helps educators understand licences used when sharing online resources, including Creative Commons, and shows ways to record attribution in different types of situations.
