"SchoolTube.com is the nation's largest K-12 moderated video sharing website that provides students and educators with a safe and FREE video sharing website that is exclusively endorsed by leading education associations."
Because it is moderated, it is a safe environment where materials made by and for students, organized into strands or channels, can be shared and used for educational purposes. In April, the site is asking for videos showing "what you and your club, school or community is doing to celebrate" Earth Day.
There are over a dozen professional organizations and companies serving as educational partners on the site. It has grown from its launch in 2006 to become the "largest teacher moderated video sharing website" in the United States.
Random House Children's Books provides a channel featuring video "book talks" and related resources to encourage reading in grades K-12.
