Informative and very high interest videos. Great to introduce a topic or for use in a flipped classroom, very fast pasted some student may have problems processing information

This is a good video for the content of Captain Cook, however, when showing this to your students be aware it moves quickly and may be hard for some students to process. I would suggest stopping for a discussion during various key points in the video or providing a synopsis before watching it.
