Shannon...  Great find. Thanks for sharing!  I just added it to the
following Google Doc
http://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=0AdMONl0JJcRCZGhtaDV4Z3RfMzlncHBuM2NocQ&hl=en
that my Google Certified Teacher Group started..
Free Online Video Resources to engage students more deeply with content

Here is a similar one for younger students  http://www.kideos.com/

And someone from the list also shared http://www.safeshare.tv/ as a way to
share your  YOU TUBES videos more safely.
