The New York Public Library just uploaded nearly 200,000 images you can use for free | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
The New York Public Library just released a treasure trove of digitized public domain images, everything from epic poetry from the 11th century to photographs of used car lots in Columbus, Ohio from the 1930s. Over 180,000 manuscripts, maps, photographs, sheet music, lithographs, postcards, and other images were released online Wednesday in incredibly high resolution, and are available to download using the library's user-friendly visualization tool. It's a nostalgist's dream come true.

Blogs and social media posts are always enhanced by graphics. More people look at and interact with posts with photos. Here's another place to find compelling graphics.

This is the second of a three-part series on finding OER. Last week, we showed you how to use Google Advanced Search to find openly licensed content. This week, we’ll show you how to search for specific OER media like videos and images using a site’s CC search filter.

Open Educational <br/>Resources: <br/>Policy, Costs and <br/>Transformation | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The Open Educational Resources (OER) movement has grown substantially since the term was first adopted at UNESCO’s 2002
Forum on the Impact of Open Courseware for Higher Education in Developing Countries (UNESCO, 2002). Since then, there has been a significant increase in the development, use and sharing of OER as more and more governments and institutions come to realise their value.
