In the subsection for Science for instance, students can browse and work actively with several interactive games / videos and experiments: On its web page http://discoveryeducation.com/products/science/middle.cfm you can try out one item of the following interactive sources:

- Interactive Videos (with hotspots which give more information when you hover over items)
- Integrated Science Simulations
- Virtual Labs (interactive games about acids & bases for instance)
- Explorations (for instance mixing colors with light in an interactive experiment)
- Videos
- Science Sleuths, where students solve open-ended science mysteries using clues and resources such as interviews, photos, articles, graphics, and more. Each episode features important life, earth, and physical science concepts

Audio/Video Courses

This site is a subsection of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) is a web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content. OCW is open and available to the world and is a permanent MIT activity.

What is MIT OpenCourseWare?
MIT OpenCourseWare is a free publication of MIT course materials that reflects almost all the undergraduate and graduate subjects taught at MIT. There is no registration or enrollment process because OCW is not a credit-bearing or degree-granting initiative.

MICROTUBE is a website where students can submit short video clips that explain microeconomic concepts, effects, or theorems.

The basic idea underlying the MICROTUBE project is very simple: Students of economics produce video clips for students of economics. If these clips are worthwhile to watch, all the better. But how to implement such an idea? After some initial discussions with experts from the media services at the University of Zurich, it was agreed that it would be advisable to invest the available time in a small number of clips (rather than having too many). So a plan was made. A script was written, a casting organized, and locations were selected. Two camera teams worked in parallel over an extremely dense offsite weekend. And then, following weeks of cutting and fine-tuning, we ultimately arrived at the clips that are shown on this website. The MICROTUBE team hopes these clips will be (or have been) enjoyable for you!

Acknowledgement. This e-learning project was made possible by the generous support of the Initiate Interactive Learning (IIL) at the University of Zurich during the years 2007 and 2008. The website was designed and realized by Michael Hohl. The MICROTUBE project is an original idea of Christian Ewerhart.

With eduMedia, teachers have access to a wide collection of educational simulations which cover all the main scientific subjects: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and General Sciences for levels ranging from primary school pupils to university undergraduates. The teaching expertise that has gone into developing the content allows us to provide highly visual and interactive classroom material to illustrate aspects of the course which would be difficult to present using traditional media.
The eduMedia site www.edumedia-sciences.com is constantly being updated and offers to date almost 380 downloadable interactive simulations available to any teacher whose school is an eduMedia subscriber.
