Because what better way to procrastinate classes than by consuming more classes?
Remember when you took MB&B 181 and you were so relieved when McAlear took over? It wasn’t because of his effusive chesthair, his 80’s good looks or his charming rogueishness; Nay, you were elated at his use of blackboarded videorecordings to document every lecture. Suddenly you were free to sleep in, to learn at your leasure, to avoid vivid up-close-and-personal interactions with that unbuttoned jungle of bio-fuzz.
Well, others are catching on. Berkeley is putting many many many many lectures and talks up on youtube, and they’re for some pretty sweet classes. Ever wanted to learn about the Structural Aspects of Biomaterials? How about an Introduction to Nonviolence? A class on… Search engines…? If you can stomach RealMedia, Berkeley also offers an in-house webcasting service with a whole lot more goodies.

I think someone’s already posted about Stanford’s sweet iTunesU thing, which also provides lectures…

EDIT: Check out LibriVox!!! They have volunteers read public domain works and then post them for free. Audiobooks for the masses, and they have a metric fuck-ton of them.

    your measurement units have been well-received at librivox! we’re thinking of doing all catalog statistical measurements in fuck-tons from now on. previously we were measuring in butt-loads. ;-) cheers, thanks for the link!

    Yeah, I really couldn’t imagine doing anything with these now, but maybe over the summer or something.

    I don’t know that any current students have time to seriously listen/watch these classes, but for alumns who WISH we were still in school, this is awesome.
