Today, many instructional and training videos are created and uploaded daily to the Web by professionals, educators, trainers, designers, and even students.  Many of these videos are well produced and can be used in teaching and training. As an educator, I always try to find and use existing free instructional videos for my courses before considering producing my own videos.  However, finding free and suitable instructional videos online requires some techniques of searching.  Jane Hart, a Social Learning Consultant and founder of the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies at UK, did a terrific job of compiling a list “25 places to find instructional videos.”  Below is a list of her recommended places that offer free instructional videos (on all subjects):
