TeacherTube - TeacherTube is exactly what it sounds like—YouTube for teachers. The design of the website is getting a little outdated (it’s reminiscent of past versions of YouTube), but there are many educational videos to choose from. Plus, students love it because a) they’re watching videos, and b) it reminds them of where they find clips of ceiling cat.
SchoolTube - a moderated video sharing website for K-12 students and teachers. Find videos on everything from anime to zoology. The design of the website is more modern than TeacherTube, which a lot of students appreciate.
