It’s a bit like having a personal tutor at your disposal. Actually, a lot of tutors. At HippoCampus, the Hewlett Foundation-funded web site that provides educational tools to high school and college student free of charge, you can hear and see a multimedia lecture on Thomas Paine or brush up on your AP physics, to suggest two among many options. The site is a project of the nonprofit Monterey Institute for Technology and Education and part of the Foundation’s work on open educational resources, which works to make high-quality educational content available to all.
