Professor Martyn Poliakoff at the University of Nottingham and video journalist Brady Haran have put together a periodic table where each element is a link to a youtube about that element. In what could be the first of firsts, this could very well be the future of online educational media for the masses. While networks like TLC and Discovery aim at bringing viewers educational information laced with big budget entertainment, these periodic youtubes are somewhat humble in their approach. Each elemental lesson is introduced in a light hearted, fun, eccentric, candid, and very genuine fashion.
