McGill videos on YouTube and iTunesU

I like posting videos in The Turret, like Minute Physics, TED Talks, and old scientific communication videos (I’m starting to think that I watch a lot of videos), but thus far I have neglected to talk about those created right here at McGill.

For example, in this video from the Soup & Science series Prof. Lehner from Geography poses the question: how much water do you use per day?

Videos from students and researchers are available on McGill’s YouTube channel or iTunesU (this link will launch iTunes).

Happy viewing!

Are video abstracts the latest trend in scientific publishing?

Hundreds of journals allow authors to submit a video abstract, i.e., a short video describing their research, along with their article.  Consequently, results of scientific experiments are now appearing on YouTube and attracting a larger audience.  Read this informative article by Jacob Berkowitz to find out more.
