eduCanon is a new site that lets teachers create video lessons relatively easily, along with have a virtual classroom where you can monitor student responses to questions you include in the lesson (thanks to TechCrunch for the tip).

I’m adding it to both A Potpourri Of The Best & Most Useful Video Sites and to The Best Sites That Students Can Use Independently And Let Teachers Check On Progress.

Also, just as an aside, that same TechCrunch post mentioned a site called Countdown For Teachers. It’s a new lesson-planning site that I’m adding to The Best Places On The Web To Write Lesson Plans, though it doesn’t seem — to me, at least — to be as easy to use as the other sites on that list.
