Online classes, fenders, updates

Thought I’d post a few finds of mine. Most of you might be way more Internet savvy so forgive me if this old news for you :).

Those of you who follow TED would have come across the  following video today – Salman Khan: Let’s use video to reinvent education. I came across Khan Academy only a month back and for those of you who do not know, this is one awesome site. What first caught my eye were the videos it has for the IIT-JEE. There are resources for any topic I can think of in Math, Physics and Chemistry and a lot more. There are tons of videos on other subjects as well. Do check it out.

Here are three other excellent resources that many of you will be aware of but are worth mentioning anyways.

  1. NPTEL: Videos by professors from IISc and the IITs.
  2. MIT OpenCourseWare: Needs no introduction – a set of excellent material by MIT ranging from lecture notes to videos.
  3. Connexions: We cannot forget connexions’ vast collection of modules.

I’m sure there are tons of places like these. (Like this list). But these are ones I have used myself and benefited a lot!

What online resources do you find useful? Let me know in a comment.

As you can see, I’ve switched over to a new theme. This one is called Enterprise. I liked this one since its a lot cleaner and the main column (where the posts are) is much wider. This also has a menu for each category at the top. I’ve redone the categories (reduced the number) and changed the widgets on my sidebar. Blog hits and links are at the bottom. Hope you like the new look too. Keep visiting! 🙂

New Header!

A big thank you to Bharath for making the new header for my blog. He is also the person behind the artwork for BoolCrunch.
Bharath has a blog of his own where he posts updates on the latest in technology and about his own projects. There’s tons to learn on Image and Video processing so check out 🙂
