MIT Video

The MIT Video website aggregates and curates video produced by the Institute's offices, laboratories, centres and administration. This includes feature and editorial videos, event recordings, academic content and more. Each day, the editorial team at MIT Video selects one or more videos to "spotlight" based on the videos' content, production value and timeliness.

MIT Video currently contains more than 12,000 videos. Here are some of the most recently added and featured.







MIT - Massachusetts Institute of Technology



Namathis organizes more than 10,800 educational videos from the Internet, 2,000 in english, 8,000 in spanish and 800 in portuguese (and increasing). It aims to offer video lessons about different subjects to help High School and university students in their studies.
Namathis seek and organize videos in matters so that the student can reach different video explanations upon the same topic. Students can also comment and ask the community about it.
Students have just one place to access the videos of the subjects they are studying; they can watch more than one explanation, so they can understand thoroughly what they are learning. They can share comments and questions with teachers and students over a specific theme.
Students can access academic contents in a flexible way. They catch up when they miss a class and, above all, they can revise the material as many times as they think it is necessary to prepare an exam
Teachers can add videos about a subject they consider useful not needing to sign up for it. Also they can answer questions of the students, taking into account that thousands of students could be helped this way.
Educational video authors in Namathis are viewed more times because they are enlisted by subject-matter and topic. Besides, every video includes a link to the author's channel in Youtube, boosting up its visibility.

Public Domain Review - Out-of-copyright works

The Public Domain Review is a not-for-profit project dedicated to showcasing the most interesting and unusual out-of-copyright works available online.
All works eventually falling out of copyright (from classic works of art, music and literature, to abandoned drafts, tentative plans, and overlooked fragments)are in the public domain, a vast commons of material that everyone is free to enjoy, share and build upon without restriction.
The Public Domain Review aims to help its readers to explore this rich terrain.
On the website it is possible to find:
- articles from leading scholars, writers, archivists, and artists provide fresh reflections and new angles on old material;
- the possibility to subscribe to the newsletter;
- browse public domain material organised in collections (films, audio, images and texts),
- a guide to finding interesting public domain works.

Knowmia - video lessons database

Knowmia is a video lessons database. It contains more than 8000 lessons on a wide range of subjects from all sort of sources and with teachers' help to make each lessons properly tagged and easily searchable. Teachers using the tools offered by Knowmia can create lessons for their own class but also contribute these lessons to the greater community. Some teachers use lessons from Knowmia in the classroom while others assign them to students as homework.
MyKnowmia is one of the tools of this database and it is described as the place where students and teachers can see and access their classes and assignment. For students, that's where they go to view and do assignments. For teachers, that's where they go to create, assign and monitor assignments. Most of the home assignment tools will be launched soon and are not available just yet. Home assignments can be personalised and it is possible to monitor students’ progresses.

Jonatan Academy

Jonatan Academy is a project for creating educational videos in Dutch for elementary schools.
The videos present on the website have been made by 11-year-old kids for younger students to learn the basics of Mathematics and Dutch language. The normal making process for these videos includes a script, the elaboration of visual material in Powerpoint and the publication on Youtube (
These videos are thought as integration or repetition to what students learn from the teacher, to help them memorise better the concepts explained.
The website also contains instructions and tools that can be useful for medium and high school students and for teachers as a guide to an interesting and useful activity.

Jonathan Academy is een project om nederlandstalige educationele video's te maken voor het basisonderwijs.
De video's op de website werden door 11-jarige kinderen gemaakt om jongere leerlingen de basis van wiskunde
en het Nederlands te leren. Bij de normale procedure voor het maken van deze filmpjes hoort een scenario, de uitwerking van beeldmateriaal in Powerpoint en een publicatie op Youtube (
Deze video's worden beschouwd als herhaling of bijkomende leerstof van wat de leerlingen zelf van de leerkracht leren, om hen zo te helpen beter de uitgelegde begrippen te onthouden. De website bevat ook instructies en hulpmiddelen die handig kunnen zijn voor studenten uit het middelbaar en voor leerkrachten als gids voor een interessante en bruikbare les.

PRIMAS - PRomoting Inquiry in Mathematics And Science

PRIMAS is an international project within the Seventh Framework Program of the European Union aiming to promote inquiry-based learning in mathematics and science at both primary and secondary levels across Europe by supporting teachers to develop inquiry-based learning pedagogies so that, in turn, pupils gain first-hand experience of scientific inquiry.

To this purpose, the project also aims to develop various resources and make them available to teachers, parents and pupils. Some of these are: teaching materials, professional development courses for teachers, support for teachers, support for professional development facilitators, informational meetings for pupils and parents.
