Chillax Lisa :)

In you can also sign up for me without Facebook but suggested Facebook ID just to save the hassle of signing up.

If you like Khan academy, you would love the YouTube Education Portal. You must be aware that all the Khan academy videos are actually hosted on YouTube itself and in their Channel you can see subject wise Playlists. However, in YouTuve Education, also other pretigious education institutes feature and you can pull out related videos under Primary and Secondary Education, University and Lifelong subjectwise from various renowned sources by a single list down query. I find that very convenient rather to visit multiple websites or channels. Try and tell me if you like it or not. Also you would need no signup here. :P

SVG is not a new image format, actually it is quite old and it never got the attention it should have. But that´s they way it is. We tried pushing it for years, but no one really was interested because it was so hard to create animations.


Thanks for pointing it out. I have updated the post now.
