Here’s an update to what I’m doing recently. I recently purchased an Apple TV for educational purpose, to watching YouTube videos that are instructional, educational, and lectures of universities (OCW and etc.).
The Apple TV is really good for as a tool for thought, it brings endless videos of things you are interested in, with somewhat good quality. (Some video quality (not speaking of resolution) are better than others, I must admit).
I highly recommend buying Apple TV if you want to educate yourself at home and have a HD TV. It only needs HDMI cable to your HD TV, and AC adapter. You also should have a high speed internet. 🙂
