[TIPS] NextVista.org

That post by Wes Fryer in his "Moving at the Speed of Creativity" blog points us to this site: http://www.nextvista.org/. Here's what the site says about itself:
     "An online library of free videos for learners everywhere - find resources to help you learn just about anything, meet people who make a difference in their communities, and even discover new parts of the world. And Next Vista for Learning wants to post your educational videos online, too. Everyone has an insight to share and yours may be just what some student or teacher somewhere needs!"
 
Browse current videos in three areas; "Light Bulbs" (Introductions to topic by students and teachers...), "Global Views (Descriptions of life and activities in schools and communities around the world...), and "Seeing Service" (Profiles of those who make life better for others.) While it doesn't yet have a LOT of videos, this does seem like a place that can become a leader for education.
 
Oh, to post a video you have to click the Share button in the bottom right corner of the video and then click the Link button.

Hi Jim,

Loved the tip! Of course, it is my site. 8^)

We welcome thoughts from anyone on how we can do what we do better. NextVista.org is a young site, but we think we're moving in the right direction by screening all the content in our library. Please consider signing up for our newsletter (info, not discussion; it's only a message or two a month).

Thanks again,
Rushton
