If you use lecture or course notes as a source of information, you will need to refer to them in your in-text citations just as you would any other source. 

  • Author: Because Laureate Education owns Walden's courses, materials found within Blackboard should include Laureate Education as the author. If there is no author, use the title of the document to replace the author in your reference or in-text citation.

  • Year: If no other date is listed on the materials, use the year you began the course (which is the last time the course was published).

  • Example: Laureate Education. (2020). Health effects of exposure to forest fires [Lecture notes]. Walden University Blackboard.
