You don't have to "do" anything formal to claim fair use. However, obtaining permissions and/or noting fair use strengthen's your fair use claims. Your statement should be included in a bibliographic annotation (or in the credits of a movie). It should note how you used the media in your learning and ALWAYS credit the original creator.
REMEMBER! You the fair use doctrine does not allow you to use large portions of another's work or to use it in any way that competes with the value of the original creator's work.
