A collection of useful video clips

Many messages are better communicated through videos rather than through text. The IEF has even used them as virtual contributions to its events, saving the environmental impacts of travel. The IEF is collecting video clips that may be useful to its members and others. If you have videos to propose on IEF topics, please send them to info@iefworld.org.
