JoVE grants developing countries access to experimental videos
Date:9/27/2011

tie Van Deventer from The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research in Johannesburg, South Africa, who works with libraries and librarians all over the continent, agrees that access to visualized experiments would be enormously helpful for students and researchers in developing countries.

On a recent trip to the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, Dr. Van Deventer visited a chemistry teaching lab. Among the 300 students in the lab, there was not a single piece of lab equipment or beaker of chemicals.

"If one were able to transfer knowledge through video, it would give them some real insight into what happens and what is required for chemical experimentation," she said. "It would make a big difference in places such as that."

Dr. Moshe Pritsker, the CEO and co-founder of JoVE, said: "Providing a window into top research labs at world leading universities for scientists and students in developing countries, JoVE aims to rapidly improve the transfer of scientific knowledge in the world."
