mwsnap001-2009-03-12-10_32_02

Ever wished you could afford to go to Harvard, Yale, MIT, Berkeley, Princeton or Stanford? Well, now you can, with Academic Earth.


This site features “Thousands of video lectures from the world’s top scholars.” No enrollment fees needed. And you get to pick what courses to attend. Needless to say, you don’t get college credit for watching the lectures, but if you have the time, it’s brain-food, baby! I love the site.

To quote the people from Academic Earth:

“Academic Earth is an organization founded with the goal of giving everyone on earth access to a world class education.

As more and more high quality educational content becomes available online for free, we ask ourselves, what are the real barriers to achieving a world class education? At Academic Earth, we are working to identify these barriers and find innovative ways to use technology to increase the ease of learning.

We are building a user-friendly educational ecosystem that will give internet users around the world the ability to easily find, interact with, and learn from full video courses and lectures from the world’s leading scholars. Our goal is to bring the best content together in one place and create an environment that in which that content is remarkably easy to use and in which user contributions make existing content increasingly valuable.”

Choose to attend lectures from such diverse subjects as :

Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, English, Entrepreneurship, History, Law, Mathematics, Medicine, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science, Psychology and Religion.
