This site is amazing and the people who made it! It has great video and graphical presentations for both content and process, enticing curious students (and teachers) to learn even more. Talking about ordinary stuff understood the extraordinary way!

Technical Remarks:

great navigation; i particularly like the slow motion and reverse function, making it easy for teachers and students to trace or follow processes
