Glean - Search for, Watch, and Ask Questions About Educational Videos

Glean is a new service designed to help teachers and students locate educational videos. The site is currently focused on topics in math and science. When you search on Glean you will find video lessons arranged according to topics and Common Core standards. As registered Glean users students can ask questions of other users while they are watching video lessons. After watching a video students have the option to watch it again or click through to a related video lesson.

Applications for Education
Glean has the potential to be a good place for students to find help with math and science homework. As a teacher you could have all of your students watch a video and enter their their questions in the margin next to the video. Having those questions available to you could be helpful in formulating the next part of a math or science lesson.
