There have been some suggestions along these lines as they produced a number of short films to accompany songs quite early on; then again there was the film of Dylan doing Subterranean Homesick Blues quite early too - probably lots of others from the early to mid 60s from a number of performers.

Some what yearh. If that's what they choose to promote it.

If children are studying the 20th century, I'm in their text books.

Not sure if The Beatles actually invented music videos but one thing is for sure, once they started doing them, everyone started getting into the act. As with anything The Beatles did in the 60's, the were always copied and considered trend setters! 

The further one travels, the less one knows

To support this:

''In addition to the song's influence on music, the song was used in what became one of the first "modern" promotional film clips, the forerunner of what later became known as the music video. Although Rolling Stoneranked it 7th in the magazine's October 1993 list of "100 Top Music Videos", the original clip was actually the opening segment of D. A. Pennebaker's film, Dont Look Back, a documentary on Bob Dylan's 1965 tour of England.''

So though it may have been the forerunner of music videos, it wasn't specifically created to be one. It was filmed in 1965 by the way.
