Academic Earth

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

As if I don’t get enough school when I’m there, I go home and watch free lectures on my computer too! Now that my brain has been stimulated back to life by my college course, I just can’t stop learning! So when I found Academic Earth I was thrilled!

Academic Earth brings online video courses from leading universities all together into one place so that you can watch them at your leisure and learn at your own pace.

We studied Dante’s Inferno in my Poetry class this spring, and low and behold in the literature section of this site there is a video on it. I was so excited that I could further what I learned in class with this video.

The categories of study include: Architecture, Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, Environmental Studies, History, International Relations, Law, Literature, Mathematics, Media Studies, Medicine, Philosophy, Physics, Psychology, and Religious Studies! That’s quite a course load.

A nice feature is the Dim the Lights link to darken the website around the video so it is easier to watch. Click Lights up to return the webpage to its original state.

After you watch a lecture, don’t forget to grade it. Click on the grade it button that the lecture has at the top of the page, and you’ll be given a selection of grades to pick from A – F.

I’ve lost hours at this site, and gained so much information. This one is definitely bookmark worthy!
