This week’s challenge is about adding media to your blog–and doing it responsibly! We’ve spent a lot of time discussing our rights and responsibilities as creators this year, and I thought this week’s challenge might provide us with an opportunity to reflect on the extent to which we’ve been applying what we’ve learned on our blogs.
A few weeks ago, I asked volunteers to create a video to add to our “About” page, introducing us to other bloggers. Please take a few minutes to watch the video that your classmates created.
What questions would you have about the images chosen if you were not from Cardiff?
Which images speak to you most? What’s missing?
Have the creators whose images and music that are used in the video been given credit? Do we have the right to use their content? If so, what is the evidence for this? What revisions might we make to the video to make this more clear? Is there content that we need to remove?
Please respond to the questions above as a comment on this post.
Step 2: Evaluate the pictures on your own blog
Have you been thoughtful about which images you use, making sure you have the right the images that you add to your blog and giving credit to the creator? If so, invite us to check it out by commenting on this post.
Step 3: Check out some of the resources for finding images and music listed in this week’s challenge. Add an image or music to your blog, using one of the resources, and then invite us to check it out by commenting on this post.
