Reminder – SOURCE your images, LINK your references

Source Your Visuals

Creative Commons Buttons from

Just a quick note. As I read across blogs some of you are very creatively incorporating visuals. (Interestingly, some of you are using the same visual. Be creative — look for new ones!)

I strongly suggest you link to your sources and give them attribution. In some cases, you are using copyrighted material without attribution which is not good academic practice, potentially a copyright violation and generally not very nice as a human being behavior. People like credit for their work! They appreciate being appreciated.

If you are looking for images that are free to use (like Creative Commons licensed images – and if you don’t know what Creative Commons is, follow that link!), consider tools like which give you an option for a free to use search criteria.

Link to Your Resources/References

In a really great blog post today I read:

 Posting images with text (much like a Meme)

I have no idea what Meme is. Add a link. Increase the value of what you put on the web! All this community/network/crowdsourcing is about ADDING VALUE to get value. So add value!

Likewise, consider links resources to learn more. (Hint, they are in your weekly syllabus pages!)


Online, offline --> learning, connecting, doing at least a little bit of good. Offline--> family, garden, chocolate!
