May 4, 2019: From the Practical Ed Tip of the Week:
I love a good YouTube clip and I bet that you do too. YouTube has become the place most of us turn to first when we need an educational video clip. Even if you use the search refinement tools in YouTube, it can be a challenge to find a clip that is appropriate for your students. Then there are still the issues of "related" videos that aren't really related to your search and comments that don't add any value to the video. Here are five good alternatives to searching on YouTube for educational video clips.
BoClips is an educational video site that I started using a few months ago. BoClips hosts more than two million videos from producers that you're probably familiar with through their YouTube channels. Videos that you find on BoClips are actually hosted on BoClips with the permission of the video producers. Here's a quick overview of how to find and share BoClips videos.
