Videos: Create Videos

Find educational videos to use for your class or project, or create your own videos.


"OpenEd is the world’s largest educational resource catalog, with over a quarter million Common Core-aligned videos, games and assessments. While it integrates with all popular Learning Management Systems it offers its own simple “flipped classroom” LMS oriented to using resources. It is the the only site focused on offering Common Core and other standard aligned resources, so it has many more times more Common Core videos and games than any other catalog."


Rather than spending valuable classroom time learning a complicated video editing program, you and your students can now get straight to the project. Whether you want to film your lectures, create exciting presentations, or encourage your students’ creativity by having them shoot, edit and share their own videos, it’s all possible using this super-simple platform. FreeTech4Teachers says Pixorial has “an intuitive user interface… users will never find themselves wondering what any of the editing tools do or what to click on next.”
