How to Find Public Domain Videos on Flickr

Flickr is known for hosting millions of images, but it also hosts lots of videos. The advanced search tools within Flickr make it easy to find videos that have Creative Commons licenses or have a public domain designation. With just one click those videos can be downloaded to your computer. Watch my video embedded below to learn how to find public domain videos on Flickr.


Applications for Education
If your students need video clips to use in slideshows or in video creation projects, Flickr can be a good place to find clips that they can reuse. If you're worried about students downloading too many files or downloading files that aren't appropriate for a classroom project, I recommend using a shared Google Drive, Dropbox, or OneDrive folder as a gallery of pre-screened media. Put some files into one of those services that your students can then access to download public domain video clips.
