In previous posts we have mentioned the Periodic Table of Videos.
We have found some other video sites which are informative and also introduce some complex topics to the general public who may want the information in a more accessible form.
Here are the ones we have found (if you know of any others, post a comment to this post and we will update accordingly).
This description is taken from their web site (3rd Mar 2013):
“Tables charting the chemical elements have been around since the 19th century – but this modern version has a short video about each one.
We’ve done all 118 – but our job’s not finished. Now we’re updating all the videos with new stories, better samples and bigger experiments.
Plus we’re making films about other areas of chemistry, latest news and occasional adventures away from the lab.
We’ve also started a new series – The Molecular Videos – featuring our favourite molecules and compounds.
All these videos are created by video journalist Brady Haran, featuring real working chemists from the University of Nottingham.”
As we add videos for the Periodic Tables Videos, you will be able to see the ones we have posted by using the periodic-table-of-videos link (this is a link to the posts tagged with periodic-table-of-videos).
Molecular Videos (Web Site)
As stated above, in the Periodic Table of Videos, the team have now extended the idea to Molecular Videos. This is a short description from the web site (3rd Mar 2013):
“These cover a range of molecules and compounds, allowing us to go beyond videos about only the elements.
This series is supported by Aldrich Chemistry.
It was previoulsy sponsored by Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).”
As we add videos for the Molecular Videos, you will be able to see the ones we have posted by using the molecular-videos link (this is a link to the posts tagged with molecular-videos).
As the YouTube site says this is simply videos about numbers. It’s interesting to note that many members of the team are from the University of Nottingham.
As we add videos for the Numberphile, you will be able to see the ones we have posted by using the numberphile-videos link (this is a link to the posts tagged with numberphile-videos).
As the name suggests, these videos feature explanations from all things in outer space. Some of the team members behind these videos are from the University of Nottingham.
As we add videos for the Deep Sky Videos, you will be able to see the ones we have posted by using the deep-sky-videos link (this is a link to the posts tagged with deep-sky-videos).
We edited this post on the 25 Mar 2013, to include details of a new video channel (PsyFile).
It is a set of Psychology videos by Brady Haran, filmed with experts from the University of Manchester’s School of Psychological Sciences.
As we add videos for the PsyFile Videos, you will be able to see the ones we have posted by using the psyfile-videos link (this is a link to the posts tagged with deep-sky-videos).
The projects above are all produced with the help of Brady Haran (a video journalist), who has worked closely with many academics from the University of Nottingham on various projects.
Over the coming weeks/months, we’ll pick a few of the videos which capture our eye and feature them on this blog.
