O2 Learn is a free, moderated video-sharing site for teachers to share their best lessons with secondary school students. The video library contains at present almost 1500 videos on various subjects (see table of content) and the number is constantly increasing as new videos are uploaded every week.
O2 Learn can give every 13-18 year old access to a huge choice of curriculum focused (UK) mini-lessons which can help them with revision or to catch up on some subjects that they can't remember or might have missed.
Students can rate the lessons: best lessons are awarded every week and every year as chosen by the student rating and an expert judging panel. To date, O2 Learn has awarded over £300,000 directly to teachers and schools in the UK. Find out more on our awards page.
In order to make the site safe and accurate, videos are moderated for appropriateness and the accuracy of the content through a network of 'learning champions'.
Teachers sharing content keep all rights in their content, can use it in any way, and can allow others to use it. By sharing the content on O2 Learn, they also give their unrestricted permission to use that content, free of charge, for the operation and promotion of the service.
The service is provided as a BETA service.

Learning on Screen Awards - Entries 2011
Here you can find a full list of entries to the 2011 Learning on Screen Awards held in London on Thursday 24th March 2011, which celebrate and reward excellence in the use of moving image and related media in learning, teaching and research.
The aim of the MEDEA Awards is to encourage innovation and good practice in the use of media (audio, video, graphics and animation) in education. The awards also recognise and promote excellence in the production and pedagogical design of media-rich learning resources.
In recent years there has been remarkable interest in the creation and use of digital video and audio in education, boosted by the increasing impact of multimedia and video based websites and applications on the internet and mobile devices. Their pedagogical vision is clear: it is only when video and audio are routine components of education and online learning, that we will have an educational environment that reflects the media-rich world in which our learners now live.
There is a separate award for User-Generated Educational Media and for Professionally Produced Educational Media, as well as other categories.
Submissions are possible in English, French, German, Italian, Polish and Spanish.
The deadline is usually in September.
