OTL: Educator.com
Thanks to BzzAgent, I've been able to use Educator.com free for a month.  Educator.com is a great online service that provides video courses in Math, Science, and Computer Science.  These courses are taught by college professors and include both lecture and working through example problems.
My husband and I have both looked at some of these video courses and been very impressed.  I've been taking the HTML course while he has looked at another of the computer science classes and one of the math classes.  It really feels like we are back in the classroom!  The courses include a video of the professor and a whiteboard area where the lecture notes and examples are visible.  I've been watching the presentations in this mode while my husband made the whiteboard full-screen which takes away the visual of the video so he is just listening to the lecture without seeing the professor.
With the HTML course I love that it also includes the history of the Internet and an overview of how the web works instead of being solely focused on the coding.  Having that background knowledge to build on can be a real advantage.
The site itself is very easy to navigate, with drop down menus for each subject.  Within each course, each lecture is broken down into many smaller segments which makes it very easy to find your place after you take a break.  There are sample lectures available so you can get a feel for the service before subscribing.
I would highly recommend Educator.com for high school and college students.  There are many Advanced Placement courses available and I think it would be helpful for students studying for the ACT, SAT, or GRE.  Educator.com covers Math, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, and Computer Science with the possibility of expanding into more areas in the future.
Use code: BUZZFA626 to try Educator.com free for a month. Current pricing is $35/month or $240 for an annual subscription.  This fee gives you online access to all of the videos plus student comments and messaging which allows you to interact with the instructors.
Full Disclosure:  I received a one month free trial of this service from BzzAgent.com.  All opinions provided here are based on my own experiences.
