Watchknow.org - Free Educational Video Wiki

Watchknow.org is a huge, user-edited directory of quality educational videos for kids ages 3-18, categorized by subject and age. Currently, more than 12 000 videos are included.


Many videos on the site come from Youtube, but there is lots of embedded and linked content from several other sources as well: TeacherTube, Google Videos, National Geographic, eHow, Howcast, graspr, SchoolTube, Internet Archive and SlideBoom. Watchknow puts videos from all these sources in one location, saving teachers and educations lots of time.

Subjects on Watchknow.org include language arts, literature, mathematics, science, history, social studies, languages, physical education, arts, computers, philosophy, crafts and many more.

New videos can be added by the users of the site, in a wiki-like fashion. To jump-start the site, a number of teachers and librarians were hired in 2009 to add thousands of videos and edit the Watchknow directory.

The project's executive director is Larry Sanger, who is one of the co-founders of Wikipedia.
