These are terrific. In my online astronomy class, I use Teach Astronomy (www.teachastronomy.com) rather than the OpenStax Astronomy book but have been able to easily link some of these videos with each chapter that we cover. They really help to bring the textbook to life and give another perspective on certain topics. To ensure my students actually watch the videos, I require them to take a short, five-question online quiz, which asks questions directly from the video materials. Thanks so much for the time and effort that went into making this resource!

Cheers,
Erik

Andrew, this is excellent! I am putting together a Canvas template following the book and I'll incorporate these as well!

Cheers,
Alice
