Students are sometimes asked to complete course assignments that are rich in media, such as videos, posters, or presentations. Sometimes they create their own original content by shooting and editing their own video scenes or photographs. More often, students will use existing digital assets--such images, video, and audio files--that were created by other people, and they repurpose those works to create their own new products. In order to create quality remixed media projects, students need to have some level of multimedia literacy. In this presentation I will talk about resources that can help guide students in finding, selecting, and evaluating digital assets, outline strategies for avoiding copyright infringement, and touch on best practices for citing sources in multimedia projects.


This presentation was given at the 2018 CTLT University-Wide Teaching and Learning Symposium.
