Educational Video Sharing Sites

The following sites contain videos that have educational content. These are video sharing sites, so keep in mind that you may encounter some that are not very useful, and perhaps some that are not school appropriate. In fact, many of these sites may be blocked by Internet filters in a school district, but these are sites that are geared specifically for offering educational videos. These can be useful for parents helping with homework at home, or for teachers to find useful videos that they can download to their computer, bring them to school, and play for the students in class.
