Links for in-class introduction for StoryMapJS:
StoryMapJS: StoryMap JS offers a simple user interface that enables you to plot specific locations, using Google Maps, and to add text and audio-visual resources that contribute to geographical narratives.
Google Images Search: You will need to find images that are free of copyright restrictions. To do this with the Google image search, first run your search, then select "Tools," then "Usage Rights," then "Creative Commons licenses."
Wikimedia Commons: You may use media found through Wikimedia Commons, but do pay attention to the type of license. Some are "use with attribution," which is always best practice, even if it is not required. Others are "use with attribute and same license." This means that you will need to supply the attribution and also indicate what kind of license it has.
