    The brainchild of former North Carolina State University professor Marshall Brain, this site uses various media, including podcasts and videos, to explain how things work. It is essentially a popular science site but contains a great deal of high quality educational content and has now expanded to cover non-science subjects (see for example How Nepotism Works). Searching is made easier by a clear interface in which categories with their various subdivisions are simply displayed: the Engineering Videos page, for example, features categories such as Robotics, Buildings and Structures, Materials Science. The site’s videos and podcasts are supplemented by a number of blogs.

    Update

    This website brings together news of the latest science research from universities in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and the USA. There are four main categories: Earth and the Environment; Health & Medicine; Science & Technology and Society & Culture. Most of the news consists of articles illustrated with still photographs but some moving imagery is used, as in this article which looks at how quickly can glaciers grow (and melt)?, using a study of the prehistoric activity of Baffin Island’s glaciers with a view to developing accurate models to predict how climate change in the future will affect glaciers and ice sheets.

    Coursera describes itself as a "social entrepreneurship company that partners with the top universities in the world to offer courses online for anyone to take, for free". Among the institutions offering courses are Stanford, the University of Pennsylvania, University of California, Berkeley and the University of Toronto. More recently the University of California, San Francisco, Edinburgh University and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne have joined up to contribute to a list of 116 courses across sixteen categories including computer science, biology, education, literature, medicine, economics, mathematics and other disciplines. None of the classes counts as credit towards degrees at the participating institutions but students do receive certificates for completing their studies. The site includes a pedagogy page which explains the pedagogical foundations on which the platform is built, detailing its extensive use of interactive exercises, quizzes and ‘mastery learning’.

    Open Culture boasts that it offers "the best free cultural & educational media on the web" and their site does a lot to live up to that claim, providing access to a large number of free educational resources, including online courses, language lessons, films and audiobooks. More than simply a list of links, Open Culture is divided into various sections which provide users with a variety of different approaches to navigating the web’s cultural and educational resources, such as a section called 125 Great Science Videos, which is a selective list of films, sub-divided into narrower scientific headings such as Technology & Mathematics, Environment, Geology and & Ecology, Physics, Astronomy & Space Travel etc. Another useful section of the site is a round-up of Intelligent YouTube Channels, which does a good job of sorting the wheat from the chaff and includes a list of universities which have collections of material on YouTube, offering brief comments on each site.
