Posting student multimedia online

Question: What are some good examples of school district Websites which have posted student work, especially multimedia projects and digital video projects, online?

The IT Guy says:
The SFETT Student Work and the Killeen ISD Digital Film Festival Websites are two great examples. When posting student work online, it is very important that the products do not include copyrighted material. Even though such material’s inclusion could be considered “fair use” when the project is shared in a face to face class, it is not when placed on a publicly accessible website.

For more on educational fair use, refer to my article “Copyright 101 for Educators.” A large number of free Websites are now available which include content that explicitly gives permission to students and others to reuse and “remix” content, including audio and video files.
