Lectures

This was an MIT program to offer free IT education to deserving students. It lasted one year. The lectures and course material are very good. Use this link to navigate the lectures and use this link to stream them. Not all courses are available for streaming.

]|[ MIT Course Lectures
Look for for complete video courses and for selected videos from the course.

]|[ Berkley Course Lectures
Note the drop down in the top right to switch between semesters going back to 2001, and the column on the right indicating video or audio.

]|[ WGBH Forums
Lecturers invited to speak to small classes around Boston. (The videos will load with a little persistence.)

]|[ TED Technology, Entertainment Design
Very slick site. The presentations are minimal but very sophisticated. Highly recommended.

Presentations and forums on MIT. There is a lot of stuff here you won't want, but there is a lot of good stuff here too. Use the navigation drop downs, top right.
