Teaching with Videos
Video can be used for a wide range of applications such as to carve away sedimentary layers from a cross section or to demonstrate and investigate processes that occur over time, such as coastal erosion, the retreat of a glacier, the formation of a dune, and much more
These pages offer advice on how to create and edit your own videos, collections of ready-to-use video resources, strategies for assessing the impact of videos in your classroom, and more. If you are interested in contributing, please join our community of video developers!
