UC Berkley Makes Class Lectures Available on YouTube

It’s ironic that at the same time the first music file sharing case goes to trial, UC Berkley has uploaded over 300 hours of video including lectures on bioengineering, physics, chemistry, peace and conflict studies and others. UC Berkley obviously favors the free dissemination of its intellectual property.

Many other universities, including UC Berkley, offer free lectures through iTunes U in the form of a podcast. Greater access to learning can only be a positive.

    This is sooooo kool. Fiat Lux, everyone (Fiat Lux is the UC motto — how appropriate!).

    This should be a quotation in the annals of history.
