Yale Adds New Batch of Free Open Courses

A quick update for you. Yale Uni­ver­si­ty has added its third batch of cours­es to its open edu­ca­tion ini­tia­tive, bring­ing the total num­ber of cours­es to 25. (Find the com­plete list here.) The lat­est round is slight­ly big­ger than pre­vi­ous ones, which bucks the trend that we’re gen­er­al­ly see­ing. (Open Cours­es have been in a notice­able slump for the past year.) Below, I have list­ed the new­ly added cours­es and pro­vid­ed links to iTunes, YouTube, and pages where you can down­load the cours­es in var­i­ous oth­er for­mats. I have also added these cours­es to our online col­lec­tion of Free Cours­es from top uni­ver­si­ties. This col­lec­tion now fea­tures over 250 free cours­es, all ready to down­load to your com­put­er or mp3 play­er. iPhone own­ers can also find many oth­er cours­es on our free iPhone app.

    I’d like to know why ‘Open Cours­es’ require iTunes — I do not and can­not run iTunes! Would a nor­mal feed that would suit Google Read­er, or Miro, be out of the ques­tion?

  • Open Culture says:


    Check out the links I pro­vid­ed to “Down­load Course.” This will let you down­load the cours­es in mul­ti­ple for­mats right to you com­put­er. As for the rss feed, it’s a good idea. Per­haps you should ping Yale and sug­gest it.

    1. dig­i­tal lec­trues, books mate­r­i­al can reach bil­lions of peo­ple.

    2. any­one any­time any­where any com­put­er any inter­ent.

    3. Uni­ver­sal accesss to facts, evi­dence, knowl­edge.
    free knowl­edge for a free world.

    4. Uni­ver­sal access to mar­ket. mar­ket to buy, sell trade. free trade.

    How do I down­load the audio files from the Yale web­site? It only lets me open them in a sep­a­rate win­dow, and if I right-click on the files, it won’t let me save them. What am I doing wrong?

    I’m com­plete­ly enrap­tured. Although the Yale open edu­ca­tion ini­tia­tive has been func­tion­ing for some time now, I find the effort at out­reach to be hon­est, heartfelt…and suc­cess­ful.

    I’ve been sam­pling cours­es from Yale for the last month, and have found myself deeply involved in many sub­jects which I’d bypassed while fol­low­ing my own Uni­ver­si­ty and Aca­d­e­m­ic edu­ca­tion.

    Thank-you a thou­sand times over… For Giuseppe Maz­zot­ta, for Joanne Freé­man, for Shel­ley and Don­ald Kagan. For access to a realm of ideas from the finest minds in Amer­i­ca.

    I am inspired, and deeply moved.
