You are enrolled in a course that has its own wiki, and one of your assignments is to write and entry on a topic relevant to the course. You are required to incorporate multimedia items into your entry, and these items must be linked to verifiable sources. That is, all multimedia must follow fair use, so no linking to an image or sound where the webpage author does not have the right to display it (for example, the webpage author did not create the image).
