How to search Google Educational Videos

As I was uploading a video I made today about how to use skype in the classroom, I came across an amazing trick for finding educational videos on google Video.

1 – Go to Google Video – http://video.google.com
2- In the search box, type: genre:educational
3 – Follow it with anything you want to find video for.

eg. I typed genre:educational computer science

You can type genre:educational chemistry ( just follow my hyperlink) and there are some AMAZING chemistry videos from college professors. Talk about showing students what college will be like, how about letting them hear a lecture from a college prof, maybe they’ll appreciate you for a change!

  1. Vicki,
    The information that you gave on using Skype in the classroom was great! I have been wanting to do Skype calls in my classroom. The videos were clear and informative. After watching those videos I watched a video from Westwood schools called Virus MOnkey. Good student work. This is a fantastic time to be a teacher!

  2. Hi,
    Google is definitely improving its search videos for finding educational video.

    A new site which is worth looking at is http://www.edutube.org which allows you to find the best educational videos from various sites, such as Google Video, YouTube, etc. Aside from searching videos from different sites, EduTube has a better search for finding educational videos, e.g. you can search by category (Chemistry, Biology), type of video (lecture, demonstration), etc.

  3. This website had some educational videos: https://sites.google.com/site/zmeyacademy/ its being worked on though its being worked on though
