  • SciVee: Making Science Visible
    Provides educational videos and synchronized video supplements for journal articles, lectures, slides, and conference posters/presentations. Videos are categorized in about 50 scientific areas, including Aerospace, Biology, Climate, DNA, Education, Genetics, Information Science, Medicine, Protein, Social Science, Training, and Zoology. People who upload videos using SciVee software may add tags and subject areas--all linked within the site--to help make their content discoverable from the search box. A service called TeachU (in beta) enables lecturers to upload their slides and to synchronize them with audio to simulate live presentations; and to preserve them so that students--or anyone--may review lectures at their convenience. The slides act as a table of contents to facilitate navigation to parts of the presentation of interest to the viewer. See full Choice review .
