Accessibility: Activities are most impactful if they are accessible to all learners. We encourage you to submit materials that follow current best practices around accessibility. While our system will attempt to present your activity as an accessible web page, only you can ensure the accessibility of any files you've uploaded. Our accessibility guidelines (opens in new window/tab)
are a good place to learn more about making the content you create accessible.
Name and institution of author(s) of the activity and any other appropriate attribution information. The first author will be given editing access to the activity submission. If the page is based on materials originally created elsewhere that should be noted with attribution given to the original authors and links provided to the original materials.
For Example: In this exercise students will be able to evaluate the effectiveness of different price indices when making cost of living adjustments.
What will student groups receive at the start of their group work? Include instructions and the specific choices the student group must make (labelled A, B, C, D, E).
Attach a Word file that will enable instructors to print out these instructions and to adapt them as needed.
NOTE: If you upload files as part of your activity remember to consider their final use in deciding on appropriate formats.
Materials that other faculty are likely to modify should be provided in easily editable formats (plain text, Word files),
whereas materials that will be likely only used verbatim are most convenient in formats that are universally
readable (PDF format is often a good choice).
Please be sure all materials you upload can be freely redistributed. For more information about copyright as it applies to materials you are sharing through this site please check our more detailed discussion (opens in a new window) of this issue.

Choosing the correct file type here will override that.
e.g. 'student_handout'This will be the name of the downloaded file. By default
the system will generate this based on the title you specified and the type of file. If you
specify a name here it will over-ride the automatically generated name. This is generally only
useful when uploading file of a type not recognized by the system (not in the list of
file types above). In that situation choose File Type: Unknown Binary and include the appropriate
suffix in the file name here. e.g. myfile.m3z
Avoid spaces or special characters in the file names.
(You)Someone else -- Describe below.
A short description of where the material came from. Include names and institutions of authors and contributors as well as acknowledgment of any work from which this was derived.
The creator/copyright holder must have agreed to allow distribution of this file through this site. If you are the creator we strongly encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option.
If none of the above licenses apply describe the conditions under
which this material appears on this site as well as any information
about reuse beyond this site.
Distributing information on the web generally requires the permission of the copyright holder--usually the original creator. Providing the information we request here will help visitors to this site understand the ways in which they may (legally) use what they find.
If you created this file (and haven't signed away your copyright) then we'd encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option. You'll retain the copyright to your file and can do as you please with it in the future.
Through this choice you are also explicitly allowing others to reuse that file as long as they give you attribution, and don't use it for commercial purposes.
If the file (or content within it) was created by others you'll need their permission. If it predates 1923 or was created by a U.S federal employee (as part of their job) it is likely in the public domain (and we can all do as we choose with it). The original author may also have explicitly stated how it may be reused (e.g. through a creative commons license). You can describe the licensing/reuse situation in the box above.
Without permission you should not upload the file. There are several options in this case:
The Stanford Copyright and Fair Use Center has more good information about copyright as it applies to academic settings.
If you have more than 5 files, include the first 5 here. After submitting the form you will have editing access to the resulting web page and will be able to upload additional files at that point.
Web resources should include both the url and a brief description of the site (and why it is relevant). Print resources should include basic citation information as well as a brief description of the resource.
