HippoCampus offers a vetted selection of high-quality video content across multiple subjects, ranging from Khan Academy to the National Repository of Online Courses.
Maintained by the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education (MITE), HippoCampus is free and its contents are largely open source (though one may have to wait through a five-second pre-roll ads from colleges and universities to get to the content). Contents include presentations/lectures, worked examples, and simulations, and range from full courses (such as Algebra I, in English and in Spanish) to “collections” of related items grouped under a subject. Students can find online content based on chosen subject areas or aligned to their class textbooks, develop playlists to work with, and share their learning plan with others.
For teachers, HippoCampus subject matter experts maintain blogs with ideas for how to incorporate HippoCampus content into the classroom, and recommend other related resources on the Web as well. There are a collection of case studies of schools that have used its math content.
Product Manager Beth Pickett reports that average visit duration lasts over 18 minutes, with an estimated 200K visits per month (93% from the U.S.) during the academic year.
