New Media and Higher Education

It's not only entertainment. New media hits higher education. Today Yale University announced they are offering undergraduate courses freely available to anyone in the world with access to the Internet:
Open Yale Courses reflects the values of a liberal arts education. Yale's philosophy of teaching and learning begins with the aim of training a broadly based, highly disciplined intellect without specifying in advance how that intellect will be used.

Oh, but wait. There's more! Stanford University has got free CS education library. MIT's got a few in classes, too. And Berkeley does it with an iPod.

Wendy Boswell from LifeHacker's got gads more college classes listed in her blog.

Oh, and back to that iPod for a sec: the New York Times wanted to know this past weekend "What did the professor say?"
