Academic Earth says they are “an organization founded with the goal of giving everyone on earth access to a world class education.”
They’ve launched a site with a few hundred lectures from top professors at top universities. Top rated lectures include: The Civil War and Reconstruction Era, 1845-1877 Yale / History by David W. Blight, Linear Algebra MIT / Mathematics by Gilbert Strang, Game Theory Yale / Economics by Benjamin Polak, Computational Science and Engineering I MIT / Mathematics by Gilbert Strang and Computer Science II: Programming Abstraction Stanford / Engineering and Julie Zelenski.
I’m watching “The Civil War and Reconstruction Era.” …and I love the “dim the lights” feature on the web page, which tunes out all of the page surround.
I hope they succeed. I’d also be happy to see them just keep adding lectures.
