Talk-Make Crash Course: Intellectual Property and Using Images for Classes, Blogs, and Websites

Photographs, drawings, and videos can enhance your digital persona. Unless these images and media are personal, though, this intellectual property should be copyright free or available to use with attribution (contrary to popular belief and usage, ArtStor images do not automatically fit these categories). I will present museum and other types of web sites that offer images to use with no attribution or just a line of attribution. After you choose some images from these sites, I will introduce Animoto (a video slideshow with sound) and ThingLink (to make images interactive)–you can use them in classes and embed them on blogs and web sites.
Note: Register on Animoto and ThingLink before THATCamp; sometimes the work goes faster if you have your images on a Goggle Drive

About Cynthia Kristan-Graham

I am an art historian interested in spatiality, architecture, and identity, especially related to Precolumbian societies. I have worked at the Getty Center, taught at the Atlanta College of Art and Auburn University, and twice been a Fellow in Pre-Columbian Studies at Dumbarton Oaks. In July I attended a Getty Digital Humanities Institutes for art historians at George Mason University. I am working on a book about spatiality at the Maya site of Chichen Itza in Yucatan, Mexico (University Press of Colorado).
