Incredible Free Video Knowledge Bank

So I was watching a piece by John Stossel the other day on Education in America and he spotlighted this guy that had a simple but amazing idea. He linked up his ability to create fun effective educational lessons with a free internet video service (YouTube). The end result was funding from Bill Gates and a repository of over 1800 short lessons on almost everything mankind has learned in the last 1000 years. Okay, maybe not everything, but it’s wildly impressive.

Here are the topics he covers:

  • Algebra
  • American Civics
  • Arithmetic
  • Banking and Money
  • Biology
  • Brain Teasers
  • Calculus
  • Chemistry
  • Competition Math
  • Computer Science
  • Cosmology and Astronomy
  • Credit Crisis
  • Currency
  • Current Economics
  • Developmental Math
  • Differential Equations
  • Finance
  • Geometry
  • History
  • Linear Algebra
  • Organic Chemistry
  • Paulson Bailout
  • Physics
  • Pre-Algebra
  • Pre-Calculus
  • Probability
  • SAT Preparation
  • Singapore Math
  • Statistics
  • Trigonometry
  • Valuation and Investing
  • Venture Capital and Capital Markets

It’s like that scene from The Matrix where Neo jacks into the loading program for the first time and Tank starts loading his brain with instant knowledge on demand.  At least that’s how I’m looking at it anyway.  The website is called  I plan on making an effort to watch at least one video a day.  My brain already hurts, I might as well go for bust.

Here is an example video under the Computer Science section.  Ah yes, Fun With Strings, good stuff.
