UC Berkeley Offers Courses on YouTube

Now this is something new! I found this article at Tech Crunch that says UC Berkeley has started uploading video recordings of course lectures on to YouTube. The initial round of lectures covers 300 hours of video on subjects including Chemistry, Physics and Non-Violence, with more content to come.

If this is a trend, it is a very good one. An education is expensive. And though you won't get a degree from learning stuff on YouTube, not as I understand it, learning is in itself worthwhile.
