We’re not allowed to copy, right? But plagiarism is still a problem for students today. And the increase in research technology is making it even easier for them to access copyright protected material. Fortunately, new innovations to Google Apps for Education can help overcome these plagiarism challenges that exist in our schools today.
Google Apps makes it easy and convenient for students to search for material that is, “free to use, share, or modify, even commercially.” To help spread the word, I have created two screencast tutorials that will demonstrate how to use Google Apps to integrate copyright free material that is “free to use, share, or modify” for students and teachers. Throughout these two videos, I will clearly demonstrate how to use:
- the “Research Tool” in Google Docs for easily inserting reference citations, footnotes, and quotations with the integration of Google Scholar
- Google Search for copyright free images
- Google Presentations to easily search and insert copyright free images into slides
- YouTube to use, modify, and republish Creative Commons videos in YouTube’s Video Editor
The first video will demonstrate how to use the "Research Tool" in Google Docs, and the second video will feature how to search and use copyright free multimedia such as images and video with Google Search, Google Presentations, and YouTube Editor.
I hope these videos are helpful and best of luck searching and using images that are "Free to Use, Share, or Modify" with Google Apps.
