VideoJug



It seems that everywhere we turn these days someone is mentioning YouTube and the incredible way good videos on YOuTube can be spread across the world by work of mouth (or email) in a matter of what seems like minutes. In my experience most teachers still do not use the power and the ease and the accessibility of video to support, teach, enhance, influence, engage etc etc in the classroom. I have blogged before about Teacher Tube and the great things that are on it. Today I came across another site called VideoJug that is basically life explained on video. vidoes are tagged according to group or topic. e.g. How to clean your house the green way or How to put out a candle without blowing it.
People can even post requests for things that they would like to know and they then hope that someone will post a video to answer the request.
There is a whole section devoted to education with some amazing historical footage Check out in particular the section on learning.

Thanks Anne,
Looks like a great site. There are lots of these "Visual howto" video sites popping up these days. Have a look at http://sclipo.com (A video site to teach skills and learn things) and http://www.expertvillage.com/ (Thousands of How-To Videos From Experts!)

Also http://www.nextvista.org/(An online library of free videos for learners everywhere)

Thanks for that Darrell. I have added them to my delicious links under video. http://del.icio.us/annieb3525/video

I'm sure that they will come in handy one day when I'm looking for something to learn.
cheers
