Getty Images has partnered with AcademicPub™, a technology platform which enables faculty to create customised course packs with real-time selection of copyright-cleared content from multiple publishers and sources.
They say: ‘Under the terms of the partnership, AcademicPub, as part of its continued mission to help educators provide engaging learning experiences, is offering an easy and legal way for its users to gain access to the stunning visual content of Getty Images, which has made millions of high-quality images and video clips seamlessly available for license within the platform. Inclusion of Getty’s image and rich media content into the AcademicPub Content Library™ went live today, greatly expanding what is already the world’s largest selection of atomized content available for course packs.’
Getty Images say: “It’s well documented that imagery and video increase student engagement at every level, and that’s only becoming more critical as we move into digital learning environments.”
AcademicPub say: “To be able to offer this amazing collection [Getty Images] to our faculty users in a transparent business model that supports each instructor’s unique course needs is a first in the academic community.”
Here’s how it works
