Go to M.I.T. for free - Academic Earth

I watched "Understanding Computers and the Internet" - downloaded the video lectures, transcript, slides and jargon doc to my computer.  Very cool. 

"On the new site Academic Earth you can watch lectures on physics from M.I.T., or catch a Yale history course on the origins of World War I, or see a U.C. Berkeley professor cradle a brain while she talks about human anatomy."  American Public Media

"It's been years since I was in school, and I've got few fond memories of going to class. But Academic Earth is unexpectedly irresistible. It's like Hulu, but for nerds."  Slate
