Time Magazine Picks Favorite Open Courses

Recently, Time Magazine ran a piece called "Logging On to the Ivy League" that tells a story we're all familiar with here -- many major universities are now recording courses and making them freely available online. (See our full list of courses here.) Somewhat ironically, the article mostly features courses from non ivy league universities (Berkeley, Stanford, MIT, etc.) But maybe I'm being too picky in mentioning that. Perhaps I should simply tell you what courses Time likes best. (These are highlighted in the print edition.) First up: the often-mentioned physics courses taught by MIT's Walter Lewin (more on that here). Next, Martin Lewis' course, The Geography of US Elections, which comes out of Stanford Continuing Studies (my day job). Loyal readers will remember that we featured Lewis' course on Open Culture last fall. And then there's Marian Diamond's Human Anatomy course. We've posted the first lecture of this popular UC Berkeley course above. You can access the complete course via these links: iTunes - Feed - YouTube. Enjoy.
