Periodic Table with videos

http://www.educatorstechnology.com/2014/10/ted-ed-new-interactive-periodic-table.html
http://ed.ted.com/periodic-videos

TED-Ed launched a clickable periodic table with videos on every element. This work is a fruit of a partnership between TED-Ed and Brady Haran, the creator of the popular YouTube channel Numberphile. The purpose behind this period table is to provide students with both a refresher and a study aid to help them better understand the different chemical elements and their properties.
