In case this got lost over the weekend I am bumping it back up: The New York Times has a piece running this weekend that surveys the landscape of online university lectures. (Get a jumbo list of free courses here.) Along the way, they focus on five lectures that “no one should miss.” They are as follows:
1.) Walter H. G. Lewin, Powers of 10 (M.I.T.)
2.) Randy Pausch, Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams (Carnegie Mellon)
3.) Dan Ariely, Predictably Irrational (Duke and M.I.T.)
We posted this one below.
4.) Langdon Hammer, Modern Poetry (Yale)
