Here is an example of a very simple video site. It's the periodic table, and if you click on each element, it shows a video of that particular element. I think it could be a great tool for chemistry teachers.
Can we make something simple and interacti...
"Forget the Year of Mobile-- It's Actually the year of Video"That is the title of the article I came across the other night. It's a short and interesting article on America's growing viewership of online video. Here are some interesting numbers.
Overall video consumption is up year on year by about 3.7%
On average, 183 million Americans view 215 video each month online.
Cisco forecasts that by 2016, two-thirds of mobile traffic will be viewing video.
The article is also abo...

I really like the simple layout of the website, but I especially like how beautifully shot the videos are! This video in particular has great detail shots, amazing use of aftereffects, and an overall simple short story of a dress. The way the credits were done were quite creative as well.

Coincidently, a friend of mine was in town to exhibit her photos for a similar kind of project called "Journeys to School." " Journeys to School" is a photographic exhibition, in which 18 photographers documented school children in 13 different countries.
"The students journey on foot, buses, boats, bicycles, rickshaws, sleds and o...
Germany, Cuba, Argentina, Peru, Bahrain, --- to name a few-- are the countries where photographer, Julian Germain, captured portraits of students in their classrooms. From 2004-2012, Germain worked on this photo project, which culminated into a book containing 450 portraits from 20 different countries.
From what they are wearing to the classroom decor-it is definitely interesting to see the similarities and differences of how classrooms look throughout the world. I find most interesting their facial expressions. Apparently,...
This is what working from home looks like.
Because of my background in journalism, I was quite interested in the 2pm panel discussion at Wednesday's Research Data Symposium. (Thanks Sharon for posting that event!) I wanted to see the different ways journalism is using data, and what kinds of data they are analyzing, and how are they visually displaying this data.
I am no expert on data analysis, but rather interested in data visualization. I always admired how newspapers and journalism outlets were able to create interesting graphs and timelines. For example, a few weeks ago, I saw a very powerful data visualization of
