7. Online Video Lectures

7.1. 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.

7.2. 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.

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

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

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

7.6. 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.

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

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

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

7.10. Thanks to Rick Henrikson (quora)

8. Free Textbooks

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

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

8.3. 3. ChemWiki:
Texts geared towards chemistry education.

8.4. Thanks to Rick Henrikson (quora)

9. Interactive & Personalized Courses

9.1. Interactive & Personalized Courses

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

9.3. 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).

9.4. 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.

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

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

9.7. 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.

9.8. Thanks to Rick Henrikson (quora)
