Educational house (edu house for short) is a genre of house music created by DJ Kronotrope. This is essentially house music that doubles up as an educational tool by imparting valuable knowledge to specialist groups and/or the general public through song.

Songs have been used as a medium for imparting knowledge for centuries. Though inferior in many respects to more traditional forms of learning, they remain especially potent for delivering small pieces of important information – especially the kind that needs to be memorised. This is because most songs contain loops. Usually, melodies constitute such loops; but for many songs with vocals, even lyrics loop. Looped lyrics assail the listener's mind and 'drill the information into one's head', so to speak.

Edu house songs can belong to any subgenre of house music, but must satisfy the conditions listed below:

1. The song qualifies as house music (this includes of all accepted subgenres such as progressive, electro, deep, and tech)
2. The knowledge imparted is valuable
3. The knowledge is 100% factually correct based on authoritative sources such as recognised academic journals
4. The knowledge imparted is not revisable within the foreseeable future
5. The song features no adult content (e.g. songs about sex and drugs cannot qualify as edu house).

1. I was dancing to this tune last night while I was drunk, and all of a sudden, I know all the actions of the acetylcholine! I was really drunk too! I must have been listening to some educational house!

2. Educational house is so useful for memorising the twenty causes of digital clubbing!
