-What are related applications to TeacherTube?
One application that Teachertube can be used for is helping ESL students to learn English and english speaking students the ability to practice their second language in a practical way. Both students can find videos that help with vocabulary and in conversation speaking. Anyone who has tried to learn a second language knows that the more you use it, the more you learn.
Students that are learning just about any language can view videos that will help them hear how native speakers speak the language at a slower pace. These students can also view these videos outside of the classroom! Most students that learn a second language only watch learning videos in the classroom. This gives them the opportunity to view them over and over again.
