    An online audiovisual library of videos, photos and sound recordings of the world’s birds. It is available to the public free of charge. Aiming to offer at least one video, photo or sound recording per species initially, the long term objective is to include material covering as many subspecies as possible and a variety of biological aspects (e.g. behaviour, feeding, breeding) for every species. The site main sections are: Explore, Upload and What’s New (i.e. new species on the site). Searching capabilities are quite decent and results can be filtered by type of material (i.e. photo, video, sound). Up-loading is free, but users need to be registered. The site also offers specially curated quizzes to test the users’ ornithological skills.

    WRI is a global research organisation with over 700 experts and staff whose work focuses on six critical issues at the intersection of environment and development: climate, energy, food, forests, water, cities and transport, and ocean. The WRI produces short videos to communicate their research and impact. They serve as visual, non-technical entry-point into the work they do. The site also offers access to three other vast resources: Presentations, where experts talk about their research; Data Library with maps, charts, data sets, infographics and other visual resources which can be searched by type, topic or geography; and Data Platforms, which provides open access to reliable data for those interested in monitoring forests with satellites, tracking the drivers of climate change, understanding indigenous communities’ land rights, planning for water scarcity, and examining the cross-section of global environmental issues.

    Engineer Mahdi Sadaghdar’s short video experiments explain electronics in a fun and entertaining way. The videos cover basic and pragmatical aspects of working with electricity such as How to Make Proper Wire Connections, How 3D Printing Works and Definition of Voltage and Current. New and older video-tutorials can be accessed via the home page of his website, where each experiment is accompanied by a written explanation which sometimes includes figures and graphics. His YouTube channel recently reached 2 million subscribers and he celebrated this with the video Changing Signal into Pulses, where he designs a circuit to make his Telsacoil produce sounds with his voice.
