Yale Puts Course Content Online

The Dec. 11th Chronicle of Higher Education reports that Yale has begun providing open access to video, audio, and textual materials for selected courses.

”Lectures can be downloaded and run in streaming video or in audio only. There are searchable transcripts of each lecture, as well as course syllabi, reading assignments, problem sets, and other materials." (per University spokesman Tom Conroy.)

So far, 7 courses have been posted to the Open Yale Courses web site. I checked Shelley Kagan's lectures on the philosophy of death and Christine Hayes' Introduction to the Old Testament, and the production values are excellent.
