In this day and age, it’s not very common for a direct download link forum that specializes in educational content to surface. Everybody seems to be hooked on downloading HD content, movies, TV shows, etc and E-Learning content is becoming increasingly rare from DDL sites. However, less hype doesn’t mean such sites aren’t there – WormHole.in is the newest DDL forum dedicated to tracking educational material. The site is very young but is brave enough to venture into this very specific niche. At WormHole.In you can find discussions about many different topics such as medical and health sciences, engineering, mathematics and a number of other similar topics. What’s even better is that this site indexes one click hosting links to related documentaries, E-books and software on these topics.
Although it’s been online for a couple of months, WH has had almost zero publicity. The site currently has around 300 members, which is expected to shoot up after articles similar to this. Despite the lack of users, a dedicated uploader team and staff appears to be hard at work adding new content tor the site to make it more appealing to new users. As of 5/5/2011 the forum had over 1500 posts on 400+ different topics.
Despite the presence of a bulletin board and a recreational forum which are more focused on math, science, medical sciences, health, etc oriented discussions, perhaps the most popular section on WormHole would be their ‘USF Resources’ forums. This is where direct download links for various educational content including websites, e-books, videos, streaming links, software, research, etc is indexed. In addition to DDL links, there are some torrents indexed as well (mostly tracking TV documentaries). There isn’t a lot of content available for download right now, but it definitely has the potential to grow.
Usually, WormHole only accepts select members into the site via recruitment. However, signups have now been opened for a limited time in a bid to expand the user base quickly. If you are interested in educational discussions and downloads (especially science and math related stuff), this would be a site worth checking out.
