Tripfilms - Travel Videos and More

Yesterday, Make Use Of ran an article listing ten travel websites for virtual sight seeing. One of the websites really jumped out at me was Tripfilms. Tripfilms hosts more than 8200 user-submitted videos from destinations all over the globe. Tripfilms videos can be searched by location using a map interface or in a list view. Videos on Tripfilms can be embedded into your blog or website.

Here's a video from Tripfilms about Saint Boniface Basilica in Canada.

Applications for Education
Tripfilms could be a good resource for geography teachers and students. Students can search Tripfilms to find videos filmed on location about the places they're researching.
