Creative Commons: free media

This past week been plugging away on short videos introducing newbies to robotic product development using engineering software. One of the big hurdles is finding the right media to capture  the big ideas as well as people's attention.

For teachers, the quest for the right image is often a Google click away. And for most teachers its open game because the curriculum you write is for the most part not limited by copyright. But what if you want to post your curriculum on a website or blog...well a great place to start tracking down images is Creative Commons. In addition to a ton of background, there is also a  dynamic search engine to find what you are looking for. This is a solid resource to keep in your back pocket as you go public.
