Open Vault

There is a nice site with historical videos that many readers of this blog may find useful. It is the Open Vault of WGBH.

The site describes itself, "Open Vault provides online access to unique and historically important content produced by public television station WGBH for individual and classroom learning. The ever-expanding site contains video excerpts, searchable transcripts, a select number of complete interviews for purchase, and resource management tools."

There is a lot here. The Social Science category 602 entries. The Humanities category has 540. The Massachusetts category has 392. Quite a few of these (hundreds!) are good for studying history.

I also think this site would be excellent for teachers at the secondary and post-secondary level. Many of these video clips would be very useful in class. I was surprised and pleased by how much of this site is free. This one is well worth putting in you bookmarks.
