Lesson videos (target audience: elementary and junior high school teachers)

Users can stream the lesson videos recorded from different school subjects that were designed and delivered for the purpose of fostering competencies among students (each lesson video is approximately 45-50 minutes). Users can watch each lesson from three separate camera angles focused on the teacher, the students, and the entire classroom. In addition, users can listen to the instructor’s explanation of the lesson being taught, read the instructor’s lesson plan, and leave their comments about the lesson.
※Users must register to view the lesson videos.
