Some one (and I’m sorry if I’m breaking some sort of twitter code here) but I can’t remember who tweeted about this website called academic earth ( The concept is simple, go there and you can watch video’s or lectures from some famous professors. I watched one on physics, but could not finish it. My thoughts through out this entire video were something as follows:

“This is a college course?”
“This is a college course at MIT?”
“This guy is nuts”
“Why are they using overhead projectors.”

So my time at MIT didn’t go very well, but atleast I didn’t pay for it. Anyway maybe you’ll do better. Head over to and watch some videos. Let me know if you find anything particurly interesting relating to technology – The introduction to robotics was cool, although I don’t think we should be teaching our students how to make killer robots.
