to list a site here is not meant as a recommendation, but maybe one can learn from the site how to do it right, i.e. desgn patterns etc.


Online Video Lectures

1. MIT Open Courseware (OCW):
Comprehensive repository of materials from many classes at MIT.  However, there is little course-to-course standardization and most lack user interaction/customization and focused visualizations.

2. Khan Academy:
Started by an MIT alum to help teach his cousins via YouTube, it now serves 1800+ courses in mathematics, science, finance, and history.

3. Berkeley Webcasts:, also available as podcasts from iTunes:

4. Stanford Engineering Everywhere (SEE):
Another collection of lectures from a small private school across the bay.

5. Udemy:
User-generated videos on a broad range of topics.

6. Multimedia Education Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT):
Links to a number of great resources for both learning & teaching across a range of academic disciplines.  Includes guides, videos, and visualizations, though organization could be much better.

7. Periodic Table of Videos:
A Mendeleevian repository of youtube videos about each element.  Pretty cool.

8. Academic Earth:
Aggregates and organizes online video courses - includes materials from many of the above resources.

9. Nixty:
Similar to Academic Earth, tries to make free online content more organized and accessible.

Free Textbooks

1. Flatworld Knowledge:
Still building up its inventory, but will hopefully incorporate interactive elements into its free electronic textbooks.

2. WikiBooks:
Relatively few finished textbooks, but if they can achieve 1/10th the success that Wikipedia has it should be quite interesting.

3. ChemWiki:
Texts geared towards chemistry education.

Interactive & Personalized Courses

Interactive & Personalized Courses

1. Carnegie Melon Open Learning Initiative:
Includes some downloadable files, as well as periodic quizzes to benchmark progress in a range of subjects.

2. EduFire:
Sign up for direct lessons with user-rated experts.  They also offer some more traditional courses as well as flashcards (not all lessons are free).

3. Better Explained:
This is primarily text-based, but the author does a good job of breaking concepts down in the way he would've liked to have had them explained to him.

4. Journal of Visual Experiments (JOVE):
This is more geared towards biological experiment education - but is definitely useful for scientific endeavors.

5. IBM Courseware:
Though primarily software/IT oriented, they seem to link to a number of valuable resources.

6. MIT Electricity & Magnetism (8.02T):
An experimental course format that offers some great supplementary material, including comprehensive notes and interactive visualizations.  I think more courses should offer material like this.
