I think MIT coined the term Open Courseware, but there are several other universities that are releasing lecture videos for free online. Now, tracking down a particular subject matter is made quite a bit easier because of a project titled Lecturefox. From the about page:
What is Lecturefox?
It’s all about the joy of learning.
Lecturefox is a free service. You can find high-quality classes from universities all over the world. We collect without exception lectures from official universities, and we have a special interest in lectures from the faculties physics, chemistry, computer science and mathematics. In the category “faculty mix” you can find miscellaneous lectures from other departments like electrical engineering, biology, psychology, economics, history and philosophy.
I really like what they’ve done in collating these resources into a single index. Tracking the companion blog’s RSS feed, you can get updates about new material that’s become available. Video, audio and text courseware are included in the index and it appears to be actively maintained and comprehensive, especially for computer science and other math/science related courses.
Forget your other new years resolutions. You couldn’t do much better than treating yourself to a free lecture every weekend.
