    While there is a whole lot of junk on YouTube (much like any public forum) there are also quite a few people that post quality content. Here's a few I've found to be worth watching, at least for laymen:


    In the more-entertainment-than-education category:



    And to make this a discussion, what are your thoughts about the accuracy of the science on these channels, and what other YouTube channels get science right?

    Nice list for a rainy day MagiMaster. Thanks for that :-)

    There is a large number of excellent scientific video channels available via u-tube or other internet sources from entire lecture series for the scientifically literate such as the Theoretical Minimum to excellent primers for the layman such as courses produced by The Total Teaching Company etc and a vast array of additional valid resources. The choice is virtually unlimited however what is needed is an effective filter that can sort the chaff from the wheat.

    It might be handy in this forum to have a 'resource links' subforum or an area to include vetted links in addition to the excellent primers some of the members here have produced. Members then could rate the voracity of the link using the survey feature of this forum to then provide a handy resource reference for use by members to brush up skills in particular areas. It would be handy for members names to be listed against their vote (endorse the vote) so that all members could discern the validity of the particular vote given.

    ..anyway, just suggestions.

    Oh, good point. I made that list from the more science popularization and edutainment view. I forgot about all the lectures and the like on YouTube. (I also don't have those channels in my subscription list though, so if anyone has a good list...)

    I tried to copy those links but couldn't, what's wrong? I can't copy anything on this thread not just those links.

    Well now I can , thank you for fixing it.
