Hi Matt,
just landed on your blog when i saw last weeks clickonline on BBC World.

Well i downloaded the videos and must admit that i appreciate your way of teaching and explanation. Kids (and 20 year odds like me who are trying to understand it 'fully') will surely benefit.

I am a Second year instrumentation engg. student at Mumbai University, India and also teach science to 9th and 10th grade students at a local class . I am going to recommend my students to see these videos so that they actually understand the concepts rather than just memorizing laws for sake of marks in examination, which ironically is too common here.

Plz continue your blogs and Thanks yet once again !

Regards,
Darshan

Thanks for the nice comments. I plan to continue posting as long as I can.

That's one reason it's only biweekly, as I don't think I could keep up with anything more regular...

Remember, people can subscribe to the RSS feed or the video podcast on iTunes to have it automatically update whenever I post a new video.
