"Vidque is a free video curation platform designed to help discover, filter and archive online video content. Controlled and curated by its users, Vidque aims to simplify the discovery of quality video content through the joint effort of the online community"

 

The site aggregates video from YouTube, Vimeo, TED and Blip.TV in a social media environment.  Each video you curate is presented in a clean and pleasing simple design together with the tags. This site is easy to use and I can see schools finding it a good way to collect and shared videos for learning.
