I thougth I'd introduce myself.  I've using Blender for a decade and for 
the past 5 years teaching middle school kids to use Blender.  Is anyone 
else working with kids and Blender?

I've created a number of video tutorials and I'm thinking of putting 
them online to share.  I'm thinking youtube but I'd like to have 
someplace that we can download from easily so we can put them on local 
machines.  Most schools seem to block youtube so the download is 
necessary.  What are people using?

My feeling is that most existing online tutorials are project oriented 
and a little too long (> 5 minutes).  The students need bite-sized tasks 
that have a payoff.  They seem to be pretty good at using different 
skills to create a final project.  For example, I start them out with a 
5 minute video on the Blender interface.  Then I have a number of short 
ones on modeling, animation, tracking, etc.
