Learning & Education TV Shows

About Learning & Education

As cable channels like The Learning Channel and the Discovery Channel have left their original educational missions behind in a quest for ratings and filled their schedules with reality and pseudoscience programming, it's become more and more difficult to find truly educational programming on television.

Despite regular assaults on its funding, though, the Public Broadcasting System remains a source of truly elucidating TV, and network specials such as "Cosmos" occasionally venture into the land of the legitimately informative. Here the approach is generally a popularizing one, with charismatic hosts such as Neil de Grasse Tyson and Bill Nye translating hard science into a fun form that's easily digested by a mainstream audience.

The rise in popularity of the TEDTalks series of video lectures has also stoked a mainstream interest in educational programming. Although many of the TEDTalks topics veer toward soft sciences, business topics and pop psychology, genuinely informative talks on topics in science, engineering, design, the environment and technology have a place in the series, too.

This genre also includes stand-alone video series that educate viewers on specific topics, such as software applications, music and other niche areas. These series provide step-by-step instruction intended to expose beginners to the topics and teach them specialized skills.
