Digital images in education

published on


A picture tells a 1000 words!

Too often education is overly biased towards written text. Yet there are very few instances when a diagram or image does not assist communication and concept development.

This workshop has two components:

  1. A look at the basics of image editing for use in online spaces, and
  2. The use of existing online images with a Creative Commons licence, and how they can be embedded in course spaces
