Applying the "Free for Education" mark

Ways in which you can use the mark

As part of the footer of a printed document

We recommend use of the mark in a footer of every page where sections of a document may be copied (eg a learner pack of selected articles) or where the free use only applies to certain sections of a document. In this case the mark might be placed in the footer and the full description and link to the AEShareNet site would be in the copyright notice at the front of the document.

The graphic may only be used in black and white or the supplied blue colour (RGB: 26, 85, 143 HEX: #1A558F CMYK: 95, 72, 18, 3).

Text only version

Wherever possible we prefer you to use one of the supplied graphics. However this is not possible in some situations (eg material distributed by plain text email, or text only websites). In these situations the following text should be used:

[FfE] You may use and copy this material freely for educational purposes, subject to the Free for Education licence conditions - see http://www.aesharenet.com.au/FfE/ for details.

The only allowed variation is to precede this by a description of the material covered, for example:

[FfE] You may use and copy pages on this website containing the [FfE] mark freely for educational purposes, subject to the Free for Education licence conditions - see http://www.aesharenet.com.au/FfE/ for details.

The word mark "[FfE]" including the square brackets must be used to take the place of the graphic.

Creating hyperlinks from the mark to the AEShareNet website

It is a condition of use of the mark that, to the maximum practical extent, every use of the mark links to http://www.aesharenet.com.au/FfE/

Creating hyperlinks from a web page

There are two ways you can add one of these marks to your web page:

Using the graphic files on the AEShareNet server

This is the easiest - just copy the HTML below, the page will display the graphic on your page. The only disadvantages are:

Example HTML using logo on AEShareNet server:
<a href="index.html" target="_blank"> <img src="graphics/FfEblue31pixels.gif" border="0" width="129" height="31" alt="available under an AEShareNet Free for Education licence"/></a>

Note: if you are using a graphic file other than FfEblue31pixels.gif you will need to change the width and height in the above code as well as the file name. See the table above for pixel sizes of the graphic files.

Using the graphic files on your own server

  1. Copy one of the graphics above and save to your hard disk. (for example in Internet Explorer right mouse click on the graphic and select "Save Picture As ...")
  2. Copy the HTML code shown below into your web page and modify the location (eg /images/) accordingly.
  3. Copy the web page and the graphic to your webserver.
Example HTML using logo on your server:
<a href="index.html" target="_blank"> <img src="../images/FfEblue31pixels.gif.html" border="0" width="129" height="31" alt="available under an AEShareNet Free for Education licence"/></a>

Note: if you are using a graphic file other than FfEblue31pixels.gif you will need to change the width and height in the above code as well as the file name. See the table above for pixel sizes of the graphic files.

Creating hyperlinks in a Word document

  1. Copy the required graphic and save on your hard disk as described above.
  2. Insert the graphic in the document (eg using commands Insert > Picture > From File and navigating to where you have saved the graphic)
  3. Select the graphic and use the command Insert > Hyperlink.
  4. Add the URL http://www.aesharenet.com.au/FfE/ and click OK

Insert hyperlink screenshot

It is also desirable to add the text "available under an AEShareNet Free for Education licence" under ScreenTip.

Hyperlinks in a PDF document

Create the hyperlink in Word and it should be preserved when you convert the document to PDF.

Hyperlinks in email

Use the text only wording as described above.
