Common Craft Releases Its 101st Explainer Video

This week Common Craft published their 101st explainer video. The latest video is about understanding terms of service agreements on websites and apps.

Like nearly all Common Craft videos Terms of Service Agreements begins with an analog example before transitioning to the digital application of that example. In this case the analog example is signing a form at a water park then seeing your picture used in an advertisement a couple of weeks later. That example is symbolic of what can happen if you don't read the terms of service on a website or app. For a real-life example of this, read about how Delta attempts to claim ownership of your photos if you use one of their hashtags.


You can watch Common Craft videos on their website. Displaying them for classroom use does require a subscription or license. Many of the videos include a downloadable lesson plan.

Disclosure: I have a long-standing in-kind relationship with Common Craft.
