I was able to find out how to link up videos from YouTube to my posts that are related to our upcoming project. There are many wonderful video resources on the web, and I really enjoy using YouTube as an example. There is such a wide variety of topics and examples that are accessible to both educators and students. One video that I referenced is a demonstration on Facial Proportions, set to music. It is slightly faster than real time and a great visual for the students. The second video is a clip of Chuck Close, a famous contemporary portrait artist, discussing the importance and reasoning behind his choice in subject matter. I learned by reading over the information in Tool #3 that there websites, such as youtube, and other accessible educational sites, are ok legally to show to anyone. As long as they are being used for educational purposes to view, this should be ok with regard to copyright laws. I created a drop box and do see the potential benefits of this in a sharing capacity.
