Dennis T OConnor's insight:

One of the most difficult things to teach is paraphrasing without plagiarising. 21CIF.COM's new Plagiarism Dropbox gives you a way to provide self-paced on-demand training that will help you students recognize plagiarism as they learn how to paraphrase.

Creative Commons Licenses and Attribution: How To Embed Them Inside Your Digital Content

Creative Commons Licenses and Attribution: How To Embed Them Inside Your Digital Content | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Robin Good: JISC provides a very well documented guide to the use of Creative Commons licences (also referred to as CC licences) which can greatly facilitate the copying, reuse, distribution, and in some cases, the modification of the original owner’s creative work without needing to get permission each time from the original rights holder.

 

In addition to this the correct use and embedding of CC license may greatly help in the effort to make original sources more transparent to the final reader, in many context, including news and content curation efforts of many kinds.

 

Creative Commons licences can be embedded into a variety of resources, such as PowerPoint, images, Word docs, elearning resources, podcasts and other audio visual resources.

 

While specifically prepared for UK public sector organizations this document can be quite useful for anyone interested in the use of CC licenses to distribute digital content online.

 

Key Benefits of embedding CC licences for content curation and attribution:

  • It can help the user see that the resource is an 'open' resource and licensed under a specific CC licence terms
     
  • It can help reduce the future 'orphan works' (works for which the rights holders are unknown or cannot be traced), and assist in creation of appropriate attribution, citation and potential negotiation for further permissions. By embedding the selected CC licence to the licence details even if the resource gets detached from its metadata. This is particularly the case if the resource is found via a search engine instead of the original website platform which might host specific copyright restrictions.

UPDATE: there have been many requests to buy the print – thank you! We’ll be looking into it this week – so hopefully by the end of the week (that being Friday March 25), we should have something available. Thanks again for all your support and positive attitude, it’s so wonderful to see so many of you enthusiastic about giving credit where credit is due. x

Yes I think giving credit to other people's material we use is the right thing to do. Thanks for posting this.

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, July 23, 2013 5:13 PM

Lots of steps to go through before using that copyrighted material. Maybe if the students had to look at this each time, they would just take your word for it and use Creative Commons licensed images to begin with!

How Do You Cite a Tweet in an Academic Paper? | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The Modern Language Association likes to keep up with the times. As we all know, some information breaks first or only on Twitter and a good academic needs to be able to cite those sources. So, the MLA has devised a standard format that you should keep in mind.
