This could be a good site for English or Science teachers who would like to give their students something extra to do something as an extension activity – in this case, add visual definitions for words.

Here they can search for a word and watch a video which explains what that word means to someone else, or alternatively they can choose a word and upload a video they have created, explaining briefly how that word has relevance for them.

As an example, this video clip shows illustrator Quentin Blake explaining what the word ‘illustration’ means to him.
