Whenever I talk about using media in videos, slideshows, podcasts, or any other media, I always emphasize the importance of using media that is either in the public domain or carries a Creative Commons license. The Creative Commons organization recently launched a new search tool that indexes nineteen sources of public domain and Creative Commons licensed media. You can see the list of sources here. In the following video I demonstrate how to use the new CC Search site. At the end of the video I highlight three other good places to find pictures for students to use in their projects.
