Net Texts Introduces Video Collections to Its Open Educational Resources Content Service

Net Texts has added a compilation of educational videos from the YouTube Education channel and leading providers such as the History Channel and PBS to its Net Texts collection of OER content.

To create the collections, Net Texts' content experts reviewed hundreds of YouTube Education channel videos and video collections, and selected those they believe teachers will find most valuable. For ease of use, Net Texts has organized the videos by author, and tagged them by subject and grade level.

The debut of the video collections follows on the heels of the fall release of Net Texts' OER Textbook Replacement Courses. Like the video collections, the OER Textbook Replacement Courses help simplify the world of open educational resources (OER) with ready-made courses for math, science, social studies, and English for grades 6-12.

Net Texts is a free, web-based system that provides teachers access to a vast library of OER content, which they can then combine with their own resources to create and publish lessons directly to students' iPads, Android tablets, or computers. More than just a content management system, Net Texts is a powerful teaching and learning tool that helps schools maximize their investments in tablets and 1:1 computing initiatives, while improving teaching and learning.
