This week our sponsor is Educator.com. I had seen Educator.com a few months ago when i was researching our article on how the Internet is changing offline learning into online classrooms and was extremely impressed with Educator. Educator basically brings together eager students with great teachers. They have a collection of streaming lectures that are all taught by college professors and cover nine subjects from mathematics to the sciences to computer programming.
Who is Educator.com for?

How do you learn on Educator?
Their product’s technological advantage is in the two-video interface which simulates one-on-one tutoring. However, the real innovation is in the indexing and searchability of topics within each lecture. A major issue with competitors is a user does not really know what is in a lecture; they may go through an entire video and not have their problem topic discussed. With Educator, a user just has to type in a topic and they can jump to a video down to the second where our instructor covers the issue.
Educator’s learning interface simulates a one-to-one learning environment with two simultaneously playing videos, one of the instructor and one of a writing tablet. Video lectures begin with an overview of the topic and focus on working out problems. The Educator.com experience is designed to feel like the user is coming in to office hours. But unlike office hours, the student can learn anytime, anywhere.
Educator is designed to cover anything you might have problems with in school. Their comprehensive table of contents and lecture videos are broken down into individual ideas. Using a powerful search engine, a student can pinpoint down to the second exactly where in a lecture their problem topic is explained. Additional features include notes and a moderated comment section help students to prepare for exams and ask questions.
Users receive unlimited access to hundreds of lectures over nine subjects for a monthly subscription fee of $20.
