11 Best Free Stock Photo Sites As designers and visual communicators, we need to make sure to use photos to help tell a story and to convey a message. While it's best to use high quality original photos whenever possible, sometimes they just won't fit into the workflow. Either you ran out of time, don't have access to the subject matter, or you don't have the equipment or patience to take a really great photo. Luckily, more and more Public Domain photo sites are popping up, where either all or a portion of the databases are completely free to use without attribution. Here are the best ones I've seen so far.

Story Structure 104: The Juicy Details - Channel 101 Wiki By Dan Harmon Okay, here's that part where the self appointed guru tells you exactly what needs to happen and when. I hope I've made it clear to you before I do that that the REAL structure of any good story is simply circular - a descent into the unknown and eventual return - and that any specific descriptions of that process are specific to you and your story. Here is my detailed description of the steps on the circle. I'm going to get really specific, and I'm not going to bother saying, "there are some exceptions to this" over and over.

High resolution images of Vermeer’s paintings Johannes Vermeer was either a remarkable 17th century Dutch painter or an enchanted sorcerer of light from beyond time and space — sometimes it’s hard to tell — but I find his work particularly entrancing among all painters. His known existing oeuvre consists of only 36 paintings, each fascinating in their own way. I have previously recommended the wonderful resource website, Essential Vermeer, maintained by Jonathan Janson, which is the go-to place on the web for information about Vermeer, his work, methods, context and historical background. Though that site lists and shows all of the master’s paintings, including showing them at their relative sizes (which can sometimes be surprising), it does not itself host high-resolution images of the works; to do so would likely add prohibitive bandwidth costs to an already intense labor of love. In addition, Josh Jones, writing for Open Culture, has assembled a more compact list. There are, of course, numerous books on Vermeer

Choosing Web 2.0 Tools for Teaching and Learning By Tom Preskett Connecting formal education to social media/web 2.0 tools is a relatively new area. Educational institutions hope that by purchasing a virtual learning environment (VLE) all of their learning technology needs will be met. However, the world moves fast, and some educators find that our suite of communication and collaboration tools doesn’t cater to our teaching and learning needs as well as they might. Interestingly, VLEs are usually more suited to managing rather than learning (but that’s for another day).
