Some time ago I blogged about self-directed college learning using the BBC’s In Our Time podcast series. Brian Lamb reports that you can go a step further with Openculture: Stanford Courses Available as Free Podcasts. How cool is that? At present the courses include:
* The Historical Jesus,
* Modern Theoretical Physics: Quantum Entanglement,
* Virgil’s Aenead: Anatomy of a Classic,
* Geography of World Cultures, and
* The Literature of Crisis
While I haven’t listened to any of these yet (just having discovered them today), they appear to be lectures covering the complete courses.
Time to warm up the iPod.
