Here's more directly on SnagLearning:

Since 2008, SnagFilms is dedicated to bringing high quality, award-winning documentaries to an online audience around the world — all for free. From the beginning, teachers have championed our films’ potential to engage their students and supplement their learning. We developed a new version of our site to cater to our growing fanbase of teachers, parents and students.

SnagLearning features carefully selected films from SnagFilms’ award-winning library of over 1,600 documentaries that are appropriate for students from middle school and up. Our titles cover nearly every classroom subject and many are produced by well-known educational sources, including PBS and National Geographic. The goal of this site is to highlight documentaries that make for engaging educational tools. We will also feature guest teacher bloggers as well as special programming stunts like Q&As with the filmmakers.
