Khan Academy is a site that offers TONS of videos related mostly to Math and Science. The videos are basically tutorials or explanations on how to solve equations. From their site "The Khan Academy is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) with the mission of providing a world-class education to anyone, anywhere. Despite being the work of one man, Salman Khan, this 1600+ video library is the most-used educational video resource as measured by YouTube video views per day and unique users per month. We are complementing this ever-growing library with user-paced exercises--developed as an open source project--allowing the Khan Academy to become the free classroom for the World."
There are some videos for other subjects, but they don't compare to the number of videos for Math and Science. Not a replacement for your lessons, but a great supplement to what you are teaching and maybe even in a method you might not normally teach it.
