The internet has expedited the information age in every way. Academic collaboration has been facilitated by online communication. I wanted to highlight a new website which has many scientific lectures online. Compared to generic video sites such as www.video.google.com/ and www.youtube.com, sites that contain random videos, videolectures.net specializes in scientific and academic lectures.
The main purpose of the project Videolectures.Net is to provide free and open access of a high quality video lectures presented by distinguished scholars and scientists at the most important and prominent events like conferences, summer schools, workshops and science promotional events from many fields of Science. The portal is aimed at promoting science, exchanging ideas and fostering knowledge sharing by providing high quality didactic contents not only to a scientific community but also to a general public. All lectures, accompanying documents, information and links are systematically selected and classified through the editorial process taking into account also users’ comments.
Apart from just being a video portal, the company managing the website helps synchronize presentation slides with the speaker’s talk. This is helpful for viewers to maximize the benefit without physically attending a presentation. If you have further inquiries or want to get your conference to have a truly global audience, then the following contact information may be useful:
