Howcast–How-To video site

howcastHowcast: http://www.howcast.com

As an alternative to other DIY websites, try Howcast. Howcast is a concisely worded and intelligently produced source for fun, free, and useful how-to videos and guides.

It combines gee-whiz with guess-what. For example, Howcast features the factoid that July is National Blueberry Month, “a great time to gorge on these tiny blue superfoods and other nutritional powerhouses” and follows with a short video titled “How to Eat More SuperFoods.” An advantage of this site is that a Transcript is included for close reading, content modification, and/or options if your school network is slow.

Known for high-quality content, Howcast streams tens of millions of videos everymonth across its multi-platform distribution network. Approaching two million downloads across iPhone, iPad, Android, and BlackBerry phones, Howcast is the number
one mobile app for instructional content — and is accessible wherever you are.
