You can use an image from an electronic source, such as a website, or from a print source, such as a book so long as it is not separately available for purchase.
It is recommended that you link to a website. If you must reproduce material from a website, check the terms and conditions to see what you are permitted to do. If there are no terms and conditions, how much you can use will depend on the type material, e.g. images or text. Videos from YouTube may be embedded directly into LearnJCU using the Mashups tool.
