Physics lessons to buy on video
There are over one hundred physics video lessons available to buy. These represent a fantastically flexible, useful and very cheap resource for teachers and students. For a start look through a simple list of the titles here:
A list of the GCSE lessons is here (for 14 to 16 year old students)
A list of the A level lessons is here (for 16 to 19 year old students)
Details of the video lessons can be seen from the section index at the bottom of this page. Some of these are intended for an introduction to A level topics and therefore can be used for GCSE (14 to 16 year old) and these are marked appropriately. All video lessons are included within the A level (16 to 19 year old) collection, only those marked as suitable are in the GCSE collection.
Supplied on USB data stick in .mov (quicktime) format there are over one hundred physics lessons / tutorials on video covering a wide range of physics topics. With a running time of over 12 hours and supported by a wide range of illustrated notes. All the notes are on this site but are included with any purchase. Schools may place these resources on their own intranet providing a permanent, powerful student aid at a one off cost.
Video tutorials are no substitute for well taught lessons but they are great additional back-up, a reminder of previous work, an aid to revision and excellent support for those in home education or who have suffered absence from school. They are extremely useful to help to fill in gaps for lessons missed or misunderstood and as a quick summary support at the end of a topic. In particular video can rapidly show practical measurements and dynamic changes which cannot be rapidly demonstrated in the classroom during revision or summary.
The advantage of purchase is that you have the complete set of tutorials permanently and very cheaply, in terms of cost per hour.
Rather than buying the lessons you can stream many of the longer Fizzics tutorials through the Curious.com website. The site contains over 25000 closely vetted lessons on scientific, educational, academic and general interest topics. For more information on an offer through this site
