The Missing Link: The Lack of Citations and Copyright Notices in Multimedia Presentations
Huffman, Stephanie
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v54 n3 p38-44 May 2010
Many of the projects and assignments we have our students complete for our classes include a multimedia presentation. Why are we not teaching our students how to cite their sources for these presentations? Writing style (APA, MLA, or Chicago) does not matter. Regardless of whether it is a paper or multimedia presentation students should always cite their sources, otherwise plagiarism is occurring. This is a skill we must teach and demand that our students take responsibility for when completing multimedia presentations. This article covers a brief overview of copyright law, provides helpful resources for students and teachers, and outlines a model that can be used in citing sources in multimedia presentations. This model goes beyond the producer required credit slide to argue for the inclusion of "in product/text" citations for multimedia presentations.
