About

 WHAT IS CRASH COURSE? 
We create free, high-quality educational videos used by teachers and learners of all kinds. That's all we want to do. After 900,000,000 views, it turns out people like this. And our videos aren't just for schools; the majority of our viewers, around 60%-70%, watch Crash Course without currently being enrolled in an associated class.

These are the series you can currently find on our channel: Chemistry, World History, Biology, Ecology, US History, Psychology, Big History, Literature, Anatomy and Physiology, Astronomy, Intellectual Property, U.S. Government & Politics, Economics, Philosophy, Physics, Games, World Mythology, Sociology, Computer Science, Film Studies, Statistics, Theater, Media Literacy, Study Skills, Statistics, History of Science, Engineering, Navigating Digital Information, European History, and Business

Here's an Example:

 WHY DO WE NEED YOUR HELP?
We do everything we can to keep costs low, but it takes a lot of resources to create Crash Course. These are the expenses your contribution helps pay for:

  • Art and animation (about 3-4 Thought Café artists/animators per series) 
  • Production and editorial (about 1-2 Complexly employees per series) 
  • Overhead (insurance, taxes, rent, office expenses, internet, benefits, utilities) 
  • Writers 
  • Consultants
  • Hosts
  • Travel for hosts
  • Props and sets

People who can afford to contribute make it possible for this content to be available for people who can't. Plus, you get stuff!
