In the past, I have written about Yale’s best-of-breed Open Course initiative, which makes available 15 free courses. They’re all recorded in high quality video and can be downloaded in multiple formats. You can access the full list here. Somewhere along the line (I’m not sure exactly when), Yale made these courses available on a dedicated YouTube channel, which means that you have another way to access these fine offerings. Above, I’ve featured a lecture on Jack Kerouac’s On the Road from a course called “The American Novel Since 1945.” You can find all of these Yale courses in our Free University Course collection. And, I’ve added the Yale YouTube channel to our list called Intelligent YouTube Collections.

Kerouac’s “On the Road” Turns 50
The lectures are so good! I can’t tell you how much David Swenson’s lectures have benefited me! How I wish I can ask him questions…
I hope to help improve the quality of videos: In Robert Schiller’s financial lectures the camcorder seemed to focus on Schiller’s back when Schiller was pointing to data projected on the board with lasser pen and talking about those data, it’s frustrating not to be able to see what’s on the board…Robert Schiller is a good-looking gentleman but perhaps more screen time can be given to the board?
i love Physics
I like the lectures a lot but is it possible to improve the lighting on the
European Civilization, 1648-1945 (HIST 202) course from John Merrimane?
I hope to hear from you
With kind regards
