Fast Five Friday – YouTube Education

This week it’s YouTube channels:

Specifically YouTube channels with an educational purpose.

These channels are all actually all sort of linked as they are produced by the Vlogbrothers team but they are some of my favourites.

Crash Course

With courses on Biology, Chemistry, World History, Literature, Economics, Astronomy and more Crash Course is a great place to learn something new. I have watched a number of their courses and am currently working through their Anatomy & Physiology course . They are filled with little animations to show how things work and ad a bit of fun. They also now have a kids channel too.


Answering your science questions, keeping you up to date on science news and telling you about some of the great science minds. This channel is an easy one to get stuck continually clicking on related videos in a search for more answers.

The Financial Diet

The new kid on the block. They started out as a tumble blog and have now branched out into videos. They are here to pass on practical financial advice.

Health Care Triage

A channel for busting medical myths and giving you the latest heath news in an easy to understand way. If you have an interest in the medical field or you have some questions on your health this ones for you. I like the way Dr Aaron breaks down the research to make it easier to understand.

How to Adult

While this one can be very American specific there are some good tips in there for young adults who are wondering why they weren’t taught basic life skills like how to do laundry or how to make spaghetti.  Its really all in the title.

So thats my five for this week. let me know if you have any favourites I haven’t mentioned.

As this is fast FIVE Friday there are only five on my list but they are certainly a lot more channels out there giving good education. If you want to find more I suggest looking at the featured channels or creators & friend lists of the above channels.
