6.08 Illustrate your points. Use your own photos and graphics if possible. Cite URL when pulling from the web or cite book when scanning book photos. If you share or post your deck, be cognizant of copyright. I am not concerned about copyright for grading purposes; I just want you to be aware that if you post anything on the web, assignment or not, you are subject to copyright laws and citing does not necessarily give you the right to use images. Consider creative commons images. Finda.photo is another good resource. due 12/08
6.09 Use PowerPoint text box (or boxes) and drawing tools to add information to a graphic or images to at least one slide. (You can hide this slide if this disrupts your slide flow or design.)
This is not a PowerPoint annotation in the sense that you annotate a slide during the presentation flow. This task simply requires that you demonstrate that you are able to use the powerpoint text and drawing tools to add information to an image or graphic that has bee placed into your presentation.
