Open Educational Resources at LCC: Finding Images and Videos
Learn how to find and use OER materials in teaching and learning.
Finding videos and images that are licensed to reuse in your classroom isn't always easy. In this video, we explore easier ways to search and specific repositories to explore to help you find these OER.
YouTube provides millions of Creative Commons-licensed videos (among their billions of video collections). The key is filtering them to isolate the Creative Commons-licensed ones.
The filter sometimes renders incorrect results. That said, remember to double check the license setting of the video. Please also check to see if the video contains any illegal content, such as an unauthorized copy of a TV show.
If the video is CC licensed, you will see the “Remix this” video button. It takes you to the YouTube video editor that allows you to remix the content of the video and publish it.
Find images for use in your classroom or in your OER.
Before you use an image, check the usage rights. Some sites require that you ask permission to use images, while others do not as long as you use the images for educational purposes and give credit to the creator.
Library & Open Access Resources
The Library subscribes to databases which contain e-books, e-journals, images, videos, and more. These resources are free to use by LCC students, faculty, and staff. However, they do not contain the copyright permissions to allow for customization, re-use, remix, or redistribution in the same way as open educational resources. Although online library resources are not "open," they are resources you can make available at zero cost to your students.
