Websites to find video (Note- not all videos on these sites are usable in OER):

Vidipedia   – the free video encyclopedia that anyone can edit.

Video Lectures  – On demand and free video from the worlds leading scientists. The main purpose of the project Videolectures.Net is to provide free and open access to high quality video lectures presented by distinguished scholars and scientists from many fields. The portal is aimed at promoting science, exchanging ideas and fostering knowledge sharing by providing high quality content to the scientific community and the general public. I had a bit of a problem because there was a blip in the code (an extra space had worked its way into the example).

TeacherTube – Videos for teachers by teachers. TeacherTube’s goal is to provide an online community for sharing instructional videos. It is a site to provide anytime, anywhere professional development with teachers teaching teachers. As well, it is a site where teachers can post videos designed for students to view in order to learn a concept or skill. The service is free for everyone. When I tried to put in a video from this site I had to install a WordPress buttom in the menu. It worked well after that so I didn’t have to follow the complicated instructions that I found on the site.  – Old style videos, with an increasing number of new ones. The Internet Archive is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form providing free access to researchers, historians, scholars, and the general public.  – Took a long time to load. Didn’t seem to work very well.

Sclipo  – Broadcast your skills. I didn’t quite understand what all this was about.
