Britannica Features

Created a couple of videos to add to my students' iTunesU folder to help them with a blogging unit they are doing.

This video shows them how to access the biography feature of Britannica Schools. It's actually pretty neat and you can search by what the person is famous for, when they lived and where they are from.

This video shows the world explorer functions, where you can play about with their atlas and also compare different countries, (very useful for MUN and humanities). At the end of this video I also quickly run through some of the features of Britannica (citation, translations, reading levels) and show how you can use it to access top quality websites and journals.
