I really enjoyed learning about copyright and fair use laws related to multimedia resources. I also found curating to be an excellent tool to organize digital resources.J.I., Special Education Teacher
I learned how to incorporate multimedia projects into my classroom. I really liked that we had assignments where we had to actually implement them in our classroom. Being given the opportunity to try out the projects that we were creating and have honest feedback about them was a plus in the class.H.M., Language Arts Teacher
I felt that this course had a lot of hands on application and I felt it was very useful to apply it in my own classroom. In this course, we would complete an assignment and then we would have our students complete a similar assignment. This helped to make sure we could see the benefit to using these multimedia tools with our students.L.W.
