Find great videos on demand to cover a variety of physical science and chemistry topics. Use with introductory or advanced level classes covering such topics as atoms, chemical bonds, molecular architecture, and much more. Find programs in other topic and subject areas by searching through "View programs." You can purchase full video programs, but purchase is not required to view the on demand videos. Be aware: VOD clips open in a smaller pop-up, so you must allow pop-ups from this site. Videos also take some time to start streaming. So be sure to preview the clips you wish to share to be sure they work properly.

In the Classroom

Use these interesting videos as an introduction to a unit or as a review at the end. If your projector cannot zoom a small window to larger size on screen, have students view videos on laptops or lab computers. Use videos as an exploratory activity to get students thinking and to highlight information to help in understanding of lab results. Assign cooperative learning groups specific topics to "watch" and report back to the class using a multimedia presentation. Have groups create podcasts demonstrating their understanding of one of the concepts. Use a site such as podOmatic, reviewed here. Another idea: have students narrate a picture using Thinglink, reviewed here. Challenge students to find a photo (legally permitted to be reproduced), upload it to Thinglink, and then narrate the photo as if it were a news report. To find Creative Commons images for student projects (with credit, of course), try Compfight, reviewed here.
