Teachable Moment: Sometimes the best person to teach a challenging concept is someone who has recently learned it and wants to share their own excitment of the discovery. I can't wait to see this video library grow.
MIT has launched an initiative encouraging its students to produce short videos teaching basic concepts in science and engineering. The videos — aimed at younger students, in grades from kindergarten through high school — will be accessible through a dedicated MIT website and YouTube channel. A subset of the videos will also be available on Khan Academy, a popular not-for-profit educational site founded by an MIT alumnus.
