How do I find free images for use in WebLearn?

I have recently been using Flickr to find photographs with a Creative Commons licence so that I can use them to liven up my Power Point presentations; however, there is no reason why they couldn’t be used to liven up a WebLearn site as well.

Flickr’s Advanced Search page has an option to only find photos with the Creative Commons (CC) licence – in general the CC licence will allow use within WebLearn. You can also search for videos and screenshots. remember to credit the source of the photo, it is usually required but even if it is not, it is courteous to add attribution.

Remember that one should always take a copy of the photo and save in the Resources tool. As attribution is generally required it may be a good idea to save the URL of the photo on the “Edit Details” page of the uploaded photo.
