Academic Earth

Sunday, March 29th, 2009

I found out about a website which aggregates lecture videos in a variety of fields from top universities in the United States. The website is Academic Earth. It has more than 1,500 videos on 17 subjects right now. Since a few years ago, I have known some websites delivering lecture videos in specific fields or podcastings for various lectures at some universities. But such aggregation in Academic Earth is novel for me, and I am interested in the ratings of courses, lectures and instructors over prestigious universities such as MIT and Stanford. I appreciate their mission statement advocating “the goal of giving everyone on earth access to a world-class education.”
