    I have never used SlideShare before so this is a new tool for me. It easy to find an open source slide deck for this topic because I have used Open Stax resources previously. However, in general I find open sourced slide decks challenging to find.

    I deleted many slides from the original resource since it covers information I do not and this activity asked for 5 – 10 slides. The reason I chose this topic is that in the spring we are looking to add ancillary resources to make our Medical Terminology OER enticing to adopt in anatomy and physiology courses taught to first-year college students.

    In order to access ancillary resources from Open Stax you must create and have verified an Instructor account. Once you create an account you have access to slide decks, testing resources and images. This proved to be a very valuable resource. In order to upload to Slide Share I chose to use my LinkedIN account (so I do not have to remember one more login). I set the privacy to shareable with anyone with the link.

    This assignment made me realize how much more I need to learn about OER and Creative Common Licence images before feeling confident. I tried to create a set of slides (an Overview of contemporary Italian authors) I may want to use for one of my lectures in the ITAL 401 course and ended up spending a really substantial amount of time to assemble just a few google slides. I am of course, very used to creating slides for my classes by looking for whatever I need wherever I can. In this case, by committing to only using the images I could find on the Creative Common search website I noticed I needed to think differently and embrace the limitations that come with only using CC images!
    The assignment also made me want to share my slides more widely and allow other colleagues to use them for their benefit. If I end up spending much time creating some ‘good’ slides, – which I may use only once or twice – why not helping other colleagues by allowing them to use those slides?

    It was very challenging and I could not find enough images to represent my idea. No remix I made did not create something new. These images can be used to define general topics only but for special examples either we have to create our own images/figures to illustrate or obtain permission for images without a Creative Commons license but related to the topics under study.

    I created a few slides with Google Slides. I did find it difficult to get the types of images and content that I was looking for through CC Search. There are definitely limitations that come with using CC content, but perhaps the more we share our content, the more will be available for future creators to use! I did remix my images a bit by cropping some of them. All of the images/content I used were either CC BY or CC BY-NC licensed. I do think it would be limiting to only have to use CC content due to the limited resources available, as opposed to creating your own slide deck and using non-CC resources.

    I have become quite familiar with a few sites that host CC licensed images such as unsplashed and Pixabay, but I often find that I can’t always find the images that I am wanting or are appropriate for my content. It was great to learn about other sites (the noun project and creative commons search) that I can also explore. Here is my slide. I haven’t remixed an image in this example.

    I used H5P Course Presentation and added videos, one of which is interactive as well as some images. I have been using H5p for a year now but have kept all my work in “in progress” as I have been concerned about copyright and using CC correctly. I have re-done this presentation and I think I have all the metadata correct and have published it into the world of H5p!

    I spent quite a bit of time reviewing the You Tube License agreement/information One of the videos (How to answer behavioural questions) has a CC license the others are licensed under the You Tube agreement. I have also included pictures from Unsplash and The Noun Project. I also found an academic journal article which turned out to be published under CC which is the first time I have seen or maybe just noticed this.

    I have been trying to use only CC images, so I am comfortable in that arena. Overall, I think this is time consuming and learning and researching copyright is difficult at times but I feel like I really learned a lot and have way more confidence filling in the metadata and copyright information and perhaps now will start publishing more on H5p and also SlideShare. I will also be looking up the Journal where the article was published as a possible outlet for me to do some publishing in the future.

    I revised some slides from a presentation I made last term about research questions for an introductory scholarly writing class. I’m quite confident creating slides by using images I find through a hasty google search, but taking the time to review the licensing for each one to make sure I had the right to use it was a good stretch for me. I became quite frustrated with the limitations of the CC database and instead switched to Google image search, setting the search parameters to only include CC licensed or public domain images. It was interesting for me to see that all the images I found and wanted to use did not require attribution! I felt like my first year scholarly writing students who are always slightly unsure about whether they’re plagiarizing or not. Is it ok just to use it and not attribute??
    Here is the link to my few slides: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/e/2PACX-1vTLTy-Iopj8W6tN4nnY2vH_bpB3SXF_PwZKnyXR3LQyMWue7LFZUaLqUCy0LI2OzM9bJK70zWIvgWG8/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000

    I did not have any presentation made, so I created one using Google Slides. It is only 5 slides, a recipe book for empanadas.

    But it was useful to discover how much effort to need to make to find the image you need in an open repository and making sure that you are adding the attribution correctly. I must say that it is not easy to find a truly open image, until you know of resources like Noun Project or openverse. It is so handy that they give you the option of copying the attribution, so you know you are doing that correctly.

    I do not teach any courses, but I would think that in a class context I would be more confident that I am using the right type of image or content and that I am attributing it the right way. Also, it made me think about the possibility of sharing those slides with others so they could use them.
