ESL 33: Oral Communications I - Endangered Species (AL): Images & Videos

Guide by Katie Hoskins. Please direct any comments to

Find Images

Many images are copyrighted, which means that you can get in legal trouble for using the images without the owner's permission. As a NOVA student you can search Image Quest and not get permission, so long as you use the citation included. Otherwise, search for images with a creative commons license.

Other advantages to using Image Quest are that you can download high quality images and get a pre-made citation.


Find Videos

While you can use YouTube videos, they do not always have the most credible information and can have copyright issues. Instead, use either Films on Demand or Academic Video Online, both of which are licensed for use. Sometimes there are transcripts (text of what was said).
