The goal of Teachertube is to provide an online community for sharing instructional videos. "We seek to fill a need for a more educationally focused, safe venue for teachers, schools, and home learners. 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."
With TeacherTube, community members can:
- Upload, tag and share videos worldwide.
- Upload Support Files to attach your educational Activities, Assessments, Lesson Plans, Notes, and Other file formats to your video.
- Browse hundreds of videos uploaded by community members.
- Find, join and create video groups to connect with people who have similar interests.
- Customize the experience by subscribing to member videos, saving favorites, and creating playlists.
- Integrate TeacherTube videos on websites using video embeds or APIs.
- Make videos public or private, users can elect to broadcast their videos publicly or share them privately with those they invite.
Most importantly, TeacherTube community members are a major part of the evolution of the site. Members are encouraged to not only upload educationally relevant
videos, but also to make constructive comments and use the rating system to show appreciation for videos of value to one as an educator or learner. Users
also have the ability to preserve the integrity of the site by flagging inappropriate videos. TeacherTube staff review flagged sites and will remove any
inappropriate posts. With more collegial commentary and discussion through messaging and responses, the quality of this resource will only increase. The service is free for everyone and I'd love to see a "special education" channel.

Watch Know is another collection of thousands of educational videos from across the Internet. The site is broken down into an easy-to-browse catalog. You can also use a standard search box to find videos. Although the site is gathering videos
from all across the web from sites like National Geographic, many of the videos are drawn from YouTube.
