Northeastern Extends Access to Science Videos

A Massachusetts university is expanding its access to STEM videos while giving access to local high schools too. Northeastern University was already subscribing to education products from the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE). Recently, the Boston-based institution decided to upgrade and provide JoVE access for all of its students, faculty and researchers. As part of the deal, the university is extending the arrangement for free to Boston public high schools too.

JoVE produces peer-reviewed videos for STEM education in biology, chemistry, environmental science, physics, engineering, psychology and clinical skills. The videos, filmed in research labs, are intended to demonstrate how to perform specific experiments and help learners understand how to do the procedures themselves. Those include transcripts and explanatory text.

Northeastern added JoVE, along with dozens of other resources, to its Center for STEM Education, to provide teachers, students and families with access to resources to help with home-based schooling. Now, the university is extending the arrangement. Interested high schools may contact Evan Simpson ([email protected]), who will be arranging partnerships and providing access to JoVE through Northeastern's Snell Library.

JoVE is also in use by institutions around the world, including the University of Notre Dame, Harvard Medical School and the University of Colorado.
