These videos are carefully selected from a large number of videos found on YouTube and other public domain video portals.
The basic criteria for selecting the videos were: rigorous scientific background, overall pedagogical and didactic quality of the material, the credibility of the source / author of videos, technical quality and compliance with the requirements of the curriculum of primary schools in Kosovo.
