Nottingham’s Periodic Table of Videos on YouTube Wins SPORE Prize
Via Scoop.it – Open learning news
Congratulations to the team at Nottingham University on winning the latest US-based SPORE prize (Science Prize for Online Resources in Education) for their popular site, The Periodic Table of Videos. It’s a collection of videos created by the University of Nottingham’s School of Chemistry and video journalist Brady Haran, and features the UK’s most well-loved, woolly-haired professor, Martyn Poliakoff, who engages his audience as intelligent laypeople with an interest in chemistry. If you’ve never seen these videos, I can recommend the one on the element called Hassium (http://www.periodicvideos.com/videos/108.htm) for starters.
Oh – and if you liked that, you might want to also have a look at Nottingham’s YouTube channel, ‘Politics in 60 Seconds’. I particularly like the explanations of Social Democracy (http://tinyurl.com/60secs-socdemocracy) and Green Politics (http://tinyurl.com/60secs-greenpolitics).
