YouTube EDU

Have you ever wondered what they study at MIT? Have you ever imagined taking a class at Stanford?

Well, you might have already done these things. For those of us who haven’t, YouTube has a new service called YouTube EDU at: http://www.youtube.com/edu.

Here, you can watch a number of educational videos ranging from mathematics to philosophy.

Many of these videos are a part of the Open Courseware Consortium Project:

An OpenCourseWare is a free and open digital publication of high quality educational materials, organized as courses. The OpenCourseWare Consortium is a collaboration of more than 200 higher education institutions and associated organizations from around the world creating a broad and deep body of open educational content using a shared model. The mission of the OpenCourseWare Consortium is to advance education and empower people worldwide through opencourseware.

If you are interested in life-long learning or know someone else who is, YouTube’s new service and the Open Courseware Consortium’s course offerings are amazing!
