BrainPOP strives to spark curiosity while delivering introductory material covering a wide range of topics. The site is organized into myriad modules, each of which showcases a short movie on a particular topic, accompanied by quizzes, interactive activities, and learning games. BrainPOP also creates monthly featured playlists on broader “Spotlight” topics such as ancient civilizations or cyberbullying.
The eponymous product, BrainPOP targets students in grades 3-8; BrainPOP Jr. is geared for students in K-3; other products (i.e. BrainPOP Español, BrainPOP ESL, etc.) have been created for other specific audiences. BrainPOP is also home to GameUp, an online learning games portal featuring vetted titles developed by leading game publishers. BrainPOP Educators is a hub for free professional development, teacher tools, and best practices.
Teachers select a topic to teach, and watch the movie with their class. They can then use the quiz provided by BrainPOP or use the materials provided to engage their classroom with the topic at hand. Additional modules related to the initially chosen topic are also displayed on the site.
Alternatively, teachers can assign movies and activities to be watched and completed. Available with certain subscriptions, the "My BrainPOP" suite of features allow teachers to track students’ progress through the work. Students can also view their past progress using My BrainPOP.
BrainPOP activities and quizzes align with a variety of standards, including the Common Core State Standards; educators can search for movies and activities by state or national standards, grade level and subject.
BrainPOP’s is primarily a web-based tool available for any browser running Flash. Apps are also available for all major platforms, including iOS and Android, though not all features are available on all versions of the app. A projector screen or large television may be used when watching movies as a class.

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.
InTech - free scientific ebooks
InTech is an Open Access publisher of academic books and journals in the fields of Science, Technology and Medicine (STM). It provides free online access to high quality research and help leading academics make their work visible and accessible to diverse new audiences around the world.
Currently InTech gives free access to 1827 books and 12 journals, collaborating with more than 70,000 authors. They are researchers and scholars from the best ranked universities in the world, including globally-renowned experts.
Initially, most of the publications were in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Manufacturing, Operations Research, Environmental Engineering, Nanotechnology, Computer Science, Renewable Energy and Electrical Engineering. Since 2010 the publishing program has been expanded to General and Civil Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Materials Sciences and in particular Medicine, Biology and Biotechnology.
InTech is based on the principle of Open Access. It is a publishing model that does not charge readers for accessing scientific publications online. As a consequence, everything published as or in an open access resource is immediately available online for free. All use is fair use so long as the original authors and sources are credited. An Open Access article is more likely to be used and cited than one behind subscription barriers. Submitted works are published by InTech under the Open Access publishing model and Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license (the author retains the copyright to his/her work and that can use it in any manner.)
All published resources on the website are accessible without registration. It is needed to submit contributions to the website.

The website of MIT-K12 project contains dozens of student-made educational video produced within an ongoing initiative MIT launched in late 2011 in collaboration with Khan Academy. The project encourages MIT students to produce short videos teaching basic concepts in science and engineering.
The videos — aimed at students in grades from kindergarten through high school — are now accessible through a dedicated MIT website and YouTube channel.
Under MIT+K12, MIT students produce 5-10-minutes-long videos on topics of their choosing. In the three dozen videos posted so far, students have focused on topics ranging from flying robots to basic chemistry to Earth’s rotation.
