Making basic knowledge accessible for people in a simple way

simpleshow foundation supports free knowledge in the form of open educational resources (OER). We focus on short and simple but high quality content to explain various topics. In collaboration with volunteer authors, we create explainer videos that can be freely used by everyone. Virtually anyone with Internet access is free to contribute by creating educational videos, based on cited and neutral information.

Morten Sondergaard

Founder & President

There is a lot of knowledge available out there in the world. However, the first challenge is to find it, the second is to understand it. So today, it is not only about providing information, but about screening, filtering and simplifying. Curating information and making the basics accessible for people in a simple way, that is what the simpleshow foundation stands for.

Jens Schmelzle


After producing thousands of explainer videos for commercial customers worldwide, we at simpleshow realized how simplicity can make a change. Our explanation format is used in all kind of branches and understood by all people, regardless of their age, nationality, religion, and educational achievement. We created the simpleshow foundation because we believe we can have an impact that surpasses the commercial environment, and sustainable change will be driven by education.

Ilya Kompasov

Foundation Manager

My favorite part about managing a non-profit with such an outstanding goal is the possibility to work with passionate people around the world. Nothing else than the work with volunteers reminds me every day that we have to work together if we are to succeed in making the entirety of human knowledge freely accessible for everyone.
