Online Educational Video Directory

Become a better teacher through the use of digital technologies. There are many web sites where you can watch streaming videos on your computer. Video streaming brings courses alive to online learners, by allowing you to use your visual and auditory senses to learn interesting and complex material.

We use streaming videos in our homeschool every day to enhance lessons. My boys processĀ  information quicker and have a stronger grasp on the subject matter when I reenforce the lesson with a video. They are motivated and engaged when they have this option.
