The New York Times Picks Five Online Lectures

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)

5.) Chris­tine Hayes, Intro­duc­tion to the Old Tes­ta­ment (Yale)
