Virtual Nerd, the math and science tutoring website, is introducing its Playlist feature to students and parents. Previously only available for tutors and teachers, the Playlist feature allows users bookmark video tutorials and practice problems, include personal notes, and material from outside sources like YouTube, and share playlists with others.
Virtual Nerd is holding a contest that will give an entire school a free subscription to Virtual Nerd for the 2011-2012 school year. The contest runs from April 13 to April 20. To enter, students, parents, teachers and supporters must “like” Virtual Nerd on Facebook and complete a nomination form on the Virtual Nerd website that says why their school deserves a free Virtual Nerd subscription. Judges will also give consideration to the school with the largest number of qualified nominations submitted.
