The Erebus Bay Weddell Seal population study is excited to announce that we now have a good selection of Weddell seal population study videos and our public outreach and education WeddellSealScience.com web portal available through the National Science Digital Library (NSDL) website. The videos are available as Open Educational Resources Commons products allowing video download and educational usage.
To readily get to our products at the NSDL, go to their easy-to-use website and type "Weddell Seal Science" in the main Search field to access, watch, and download our project videos. Viewers can check out and download videos for personal enjoyment and informal science learning and teaching. The videos can be remixed to create new educational products.
Following is the description of the mission of the National Science Digital Library from their "Overview" section:
Who We Are and What We Do
The National Science Digital Library provides high quality online educational resources for teaching and learning, with current emphasis on the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines—both formal and informal, institutional and individual, in local, state, national, and international educational settings. The NSDL collection contains structured descriptive information (metadata) about web-based educational resources held on other sites by their providers. These providers have contribute this metadata to NSDL for organized search and open access to educational resources via this website and its services.
Most resources in the library adhere to principles of Open Educational Resource (OER) access, although some resources are restricted to provider site membership, or may have a cost associated with them (indicated in the full record of the resource).
All WeddellSealScience.com videos and products are free for educational usage! We hope you enjoy watching some of our videos and accessing our web portal, WeddellSealScience.com!
