The Cosmolearning project was set up in 2007 after a year of preparation during which the various videos collected on line were catalogued in order to produce an easy-to-use instrument to improve the quality of home-schooling, to provide quality resources for traditional teaching and improve the quality of learning for self-learners. With its attractive and easy-to-use interface, Cosmolearning now contains approximately 500 courses, over 1,500 documentaries, around 1,400 videos and over 1,300 images. The Video section includes video material in various formats, from lectures to interviews, as well as other kinds of historical documents such as presidential addresses. The contents are organized into 36 Academic Subjects, including different sections related to the political sciences, totalling more than 600 videos, categorized by topic (American Politics, International Relations, Political Philosophy and Political Strategy) and subtopics. The home page shows all the recent section updates, while the front page for each topic opens with a presentation and summary of all the videos, courses, video lectures, and documentary material available inside. All the videos are incorporated in the site and have an introduction and/or additional information, and users can give feedback. This is an interesting project because of its focus on improving the quality of content for the self-taught, but a weakness is the lack of homogeneity of the collected material, with no indication of the selection criteria used, nor any kind of order to follow for study purposes.
