Open Yale Courses

This is way cool.  I just found out that Yale has made several of their courses free over the internet.

Taken from the Open Yale Courses FAQ:

  1. What is Open Yale Courses?

    Open Yale Courses provides lectures and other materials from selected Yale College courses to the public free of charge via the internet. The courses span the full range of liberal arts disciplines, including humanities, social sciences, and physical and biological sciences.

  2. Why is Yale sharing some of its undergraduate courses free worldwide?

    While it has long upheld the principle that education is best built upon direct interactions among teachers, students, and staff, Yale also believes that leading universities can make an important contribution to expanding access to educational resources through the use of internet technology. The goals of the project also align with the University’s aim to increase its presence and strengthen its relationships internationally.

  3. What is included in these online courses?

    Each course includes a full set of class lectures produced in high-quality video accompanied by such other course materials as syllabi, suggested readings, and problem sets. The lectures are available as downloadable videos, and an audio-only version is also offered. In addition, searchable transcripts of each lecture are provided.

If you have the time and would like to learn something new,  please do listen to the lectures.  ‘I’ve certainly learned a lot from the Financial Markets course.

Here are some of the courses:

Biomedical Engineering
Ancient Greek History
Game Theory
Financial Markets
Milton
The American Novel Since 1945
The Civil War and Reconstruction Era
France Since 1871
