Want a Second Opinion in Your Course Lectures?

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.
