Like many of the sources that I find and instantly fall in love with, I first discovered this on the Free Tech for Teachers blog, which is an excellent source in and of itself. I would describe Qwiki as Wikipedia, but designed for the multi-media-obsessed-visual-learners-with-attention-span-issues out there like me. You simply type in a search topic (I searched Romeo and Juliet because my English I unit on Shakespeare is quickly approaching. Needless to say, I was truly impressed with the quality of information provided. The multimedia, picture-rich entries are not long-winded, and easily captured my attention. One of the best features was that, if you want more information on a topic, related videos will pop up at the bottom of the entry. Also, words and phrases that have related entries appear in blue during the entry that you are watching.
