Science and Engineering Instructional Webcasts

Posted on January 25, 2008  Comments (2)

doFlick offers user-generated educational, technical and instructional videos on science and engineering. Examples include: Simple CircuitsHow to do a basic leak test in vacuum systemsBacteria in the Human MouthTransverse Standing WavesPulsed Layer Deposition Overview

The site offers a short videos on science and engineering topics (plus some other topics as well). The site fills a niche that is different that any other site I have seen. The videos are largely tips on lab or engineering techniques or edited labs. These are videos that might appear on network TV but they are exactly the type of resource that makes the internet great. Lets build this resource: upload your own webcasts. There is a great advantage to short targeted online videos (compared to full course lectures – which are also great) because the short targeted videos allow for targeted linking specifically to the video content you want to link to.

This is definitely worth adding to your bookmarks. Or you can just bookmark our directory of science and engineering videos.
