Photos and Graphics

There are free photos, graphics, and graphic design tools available to you online. It’s important to either use copyright free photos or follow Fair Use Guidelines. Images are great for both students and faculty to use in presentations, online courses, and more. Macie Hall from John Hopkins University says, “Instructors have reported that their use of images in the classroom has led to increased student interactivity and discussion. Teaching with images can also help develop students’ visual literacy skills, which contributes to their overall critical thinking skills and lifelong learning.”
