This week I'm taking a few days off to ski, play with my dogs, visit with friends and family, and generally recharge my batteries. If you're on vacation this week too, I hope that you're having a great vacation. While I'm away I'm rerunning the most popular posts of the year. The selections are based on pageviews during 2012. New posts will begin again tomorrow.
Last night I stumbled upon this video of David Breashears presenting at the Cambridge Science Festival. The video is hosted by MIT Video which I either had never seen before or had completely forgotten about (a real possibility after 6500+ blog posts).
MIT Video is a giant collection of more than 10,000 educational videos organized into more than 150 channels. The largest channel is the Open Courseware channel that contains more than 2,300 lectures from MIT's open courses.
All of the videos are either MIT productions or videos approved by
editors at MIT Video. Only people with MIT email addresses are allowed
to contribute to the collection. Some videos are hosted by MIT Video
while others are from YouTube.
Applications for Education
If you're looking for educational videos to use to supplement your
instruction in your high school or undergraduate courses, it will be
well worth your time to search through MIT Video.
