Cartoons/Videos/YouTube

Is it okay to use these in our online courses? How can we get permission (if at all) to use these creations?

Dori,

It is my understanding that Google Images hosts a variety of cartoons and gifs that are public domain and can be used in our classrooms.  What did you find out regarding permissions on Utube videos?

It would be most appropriate to write the author so that there is no copyright issues.
