This is an collaborative effort to create some teaching materials about the Lightning Network. Eventually all information provided and articles should be written on this wiki for a start we can of course just link to articles.
There is a list of potential videos to be created on the talk page. Feel free to take over responsibility for a video or add ideas to the list. You could also erase videos from the list if you think we wouldn't need them.
We start with a loose collection of links.
