WatchKnowLearn- Free Educational Videos

When we returned in August my school district announced they would be discontinuing our district Discovery Streaming and Brainpop accounts.  As you can imagine the gasps were echoed throughout the library.   With so many school districts facing the difficult task of balancing budgets, they are left with  having to make hard decisions such as this. By discontinuing these services we were able to save 3 teacher jobs. It was then reality set in making this sacrifice less painful.  Many teachers went on the quest to find videos that would supplement our Discovery Streaming library.

I just happened to stumble on WatchKnowLearn it has an indexed of  over 20,000 educational videos, placing them into a directory of over 3,000 categories. Their videos are available without any registration or fees to teachers in the classroom and to students at home 24/7

Happy Streaming!


  1. Love this!! Can't wait for a free moment to browse!

  2. Thanks for the great post! Glad we can help fill the gap in this tight time of budget cuts! I've personally used WKL for two years even though our district provided one of the other mentioned sites... I found more things that my students enjoyed on WKL. We also have a feature for creating your own, online classroom (also a great platform for the concept of flipping.) Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
