Crash Course is a free YouTube Channel that publishes short 10-15 minute episodes on a variety of educational topics including Economics, Philosophy, Politics, Astronomy, Anatomy & Physiology, Intellectual Property, History, Psychology, Literature, Biology, Ecology, and Chemistry. This specific artifact will take the visitor directly to the Psychology course. The Psychology course includes 40 videos on a variety of topics in psychology, providing graphically stimulating, amusing, yet accurate introductions to key psychology subjects. The videos provide a strong overview of the field in broad enough terms to understand, while still covering the different schools of study, major theorists, and their teachings.
Crash Course was started by two teachers with a goal to provide fun and easy-to-understand learning videos for the public. They partner with experts in the aforementioned fields to provide scientifically accurate content. Their goal is to “provide educational content in the hope that it will be useful to people." These videos can truly be used in a variety of settings: instructors could show these videos in a classroom, or assign them to their students, or students can use them to review and study a specific topic. The videos provided are at a level that would be most appropriate for high school or college courses. However, there is also a partner YouTube Channel called Crash Course Kids that provides content more appropriate for elementary and middle school students.
