YouTube EDU

I was flicking through recent editions of TIME Magazine this morning, and found a couple of interesting articles on YouTube EDU (something I had not heard of before now), and how American university academics are using it to publish their lectures online. I thought it was an interesting exploration of information-sharing and information accessibility.

Also, Check out iTunesU, you'll need iTunes installed on your computer to access it though. It is amazing how much content is freely available through these kinds of portals, in some cases the entire lecture content from courses at the best universities in the world.

Yes, the articles refer to iTunesU, too; they also mention TED.com:
