I wanted to give everyone a heads up that Yale has just released its second round of “open courses.” And I have to say that the lineup looks great. Let me quickly list them for you:
- The American Novel Since 1945 (Amy Hungerford)
- Introduction to Greek History (Donald Kagan)
- Game Theory (Ben Polak)
- Financial Markets (Robert Shiller)
- Milton (John Rogers)
- France Since 1871 (John Merriman)
- The Civil War and Reconstruction Era, 1845-1877 (David Blight)
- Fundamentals of Physics (Ramamurti Shankar)
- Frontiers of Biomedical Engineering (W. Mark Saltzman)
As always, each course features a syllabus, reading assignments, class notes, and quite polished lectures. The lectures can be downloaded in one of five formats (text, audio, flash video, low bandwidth quicktime video, and high bandwidth quicktime video). And quite notably, Yale has designed the courses to be platform agnostic, meaning that you should be able to download the lectures to any computer or mp3 player. For more on Yale’s Open Course initiative, please visit its official website here. And please note that you can also find these courses in our larger collection of Free Online Courses.

I highly recommend Yale’s Robert Wyman’s “Global Problems of Population Growth”! A fascinating cross disciplinary look at the history of humanity via anthropology, history, social science and medicine. Great information and great lecturer!
Great article. Thanks for sharing!…
