With this extra money, we'll be able to build a system that will allow all completed Crash Courses to be available for digital download without advertising. This is especially important for school districts that do not allow their teachers to use YouTube (yes, really) and schools with slow internet. The downloads, however, will be available to everyone, not just teachers.


John & Hank Green and friends teach you all kinds of subjects - from World History to Astronomy, Literature to Psychology, and everything in between!

We create free, high-quality educational videos used by teachers and learners of all kinds. That's all we want to do. After 200,000,000 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 being currently enrolled in an associated class.

So far, we've taught Chemistry, World History, Biology, Ecology, US History, Psychology, Big History, Literature, and we're in the middle of Anatomy and Physiology, Astronomy, US Government, and World History (again.)

Here's an Example:

We do everything we can to keep costs low, but we need researchers and writers, animators and musicians, editors, and production staff. We could, I promise, make much more money selling these programs to school districts, that's just contrary to our entire mission.

But since no one is required to pay, some people have to choose to. It's fine if you aren't going to be one of those people, but we hope that you are. Plus, you get stuff!
