    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.

    The NSF is an American Federal Agency which funds research across a wide range of scientific areas, from astronomy to geology to zoology, with the exception of medical science. A particular aim is to fund cutting-edge research: projects and collaborations which may "seem like science fiction today" but tomorrow will be accepted as part of the fabric of everyday life. Their nanoscience page reflects this commitment to pushing back the frontiers of scientific research. The Multimedia Gallery features stills, podcasts, film and video across all fields of science and engineering, again, with an emphasis on current research and development, coupled with an awareness of the foundation’s educational mission.

    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.
