Quite a few of you may have been to the BBC Motion Gallery and downloaded a few movies as I did for my Media class. However one day a staff member asked if I knew where there were some clips on Rugby scrums and tackling techniques. I showed him this motion gallery and when we put tackle in the search form and chose the sport category it came up with hundreds of short clips taken from high quality commercial footage. When you choose to preview a particular clip it also has related search choices on the side. He was able to build up a sequence of clips for his students to watch in Keynote. That was just one use and you can literally search for anything and get short clips. Students could use it as a great resource to make their presentations better. I think that it definately is a great visual tool for showing students things in context.
