DNATUBE is a collection of freely accessible online video clips.
There are a couple of features about today’s site – DNATUBE – which make it unique. The first is content. Unlike similar sites which are little more then a collection of YouTube Video’s on a particular topic, DNATUBE has no YouTube video content – at least none that I could find. Instead, videos are contributed by members of the scientific community. At present, close to 5000 titles have been contributed, covering a wide range of topics/categories such as biochemistry, cell biology, ecology, microbiology, neuroscience, organic chemistry and many others. There is even a section on computer science.
Users can browse the titles in each category or conduct a key-word search.
Most of the clips are 5 to 10 minutes in length however, there is the odd title which runs an hour or more.
Bottom line? This is a great site for Middle or High School Science teachers. The ability to see a DNA strand or similar structure rather then reading about in a book should make a world of difference in student understanding and comprehension.
All video’s are freely accessible (but not downloadable) without the need for a sign-up or account.
