The real-time encyclopedia, Mashpedia, recently added a Qwiki function to its site.

You can search for a subject, such as the Straits of Florida, and on the results page, to the right, you will see a box, like this, with Qwiki videos. Just click on one of the arrows, and you can scroll through the relevant Qwikis. is a great site that offers a huge assortment of videos on topics such as monuments, historical figures, animals, natural wonders and topics in the daily news.

What I like about these videos is that they are short but offer all of the basic information about the topics. Also, they are just beautiful videos and so interesting, which I think your students will appreciate.
