I am a professor/instructor. Can I use Visible Body images in the classroom?

We love it when instructors/professors teach with our products. Instructors/professors who require a Visible Body product on their course syllabus or who teach at a school that has a Visible Body site license may use the product and images from it in lecture presentations, class notes, lab manuals, or study materials circulated exclusively to students in the course. Permission to use Visible Body products in lecture and in course handout materials is granted at no cost, provided that you meet the following criteria:

  • Your course syllabus must require a Visible Body product or provide instructions for accessing your school's site-licensed Visible Body product.
  • You must follow the attribution guidelines when using an image in your lecture notes or course materials.
  • This material must be circulated exclusively to students in the course.
  • You may not sell, in any form, the course materials that include Visible Body content.
  • You may not make the materials that include Visible Body content available on any web site that includes advertising.

If your course materials meet the above criteria, specific permission is not required. Simply follow the attribution guidelines explained below.

If your course materials do not meet the above criteria, we are happy to provide you a quote for using images from our apps. Please note that permissions costs begin at $750.

To receive a bid for your particular licensing needs submit a permissions request. Include your school, course name and number, and your request.
