Hi, I'm Wiley, the guy behind Wydea.
The goal of this site is to help people understand and appreciate science and technology in the world around us. In doing so, I hope to help improve education and inspire people to continue learning throughout their lives.
On this site you'll find a collection of fun and friendly animated videos explaining topics in an easy-to-understand, interesting way.
Simply put, I've designed Wydea around creating a positive, entertaining learning environment for many types of people.
Who are you?
I've been fascinated by how things work since I was a child. I've always enjoyed taking things apart, building inventions and exploring science and technology. I have a computer science degree from a top university and have worked for several years as a software engineer and as a sales engineer. Basically, I understand science and technology and know how to break down complex topics into straight-forward explanations.
How did you create the videos?
I created the entire videos, start to finish. I started by creating a script. Next, I drew the necessary art work. Finally, I combined the art and audio recording in Flash to create the final animation. More recently, I've switched over to Abobe After Effects to create new videos. Each video takes a significant amount of time to make.
