  1. That’s great! Thank you for this list, it is really useful for those who want to study at home, even more so in these times of social isolation, with schools closed in various parts of the world. I didn’t know many of these channels, only TED-Ed, which is an incredible tool, as a science teacher, I always use it in my classes.
