Instructors, schools, and others are welcome to link to or use any of the material posted on my website, as long as the materials are not repackaged in any for-sale items (e.g., books, DVDs, etc.), and as long as the source is clearly cited (and linked, if online). I post all of the material on my website so people can use it and benefit from it, not to keep it private. However, I do ask that no part of my books, DVDs, or CD-ROMs be copied or used directly without my permission.
