Open Yale Courses

Open access to courses from Yale University

The lecture videos might be a good way to provide a "visiting lecturer" for some high school classes. (ie Poetry, Chemistry, Physics, Astronomy, etc.) Each lesson is delivered in video format with notes. Teachers might find ideas that they might use in their own course content.

"Open Yale Courses provides free and open access to a selection of introductory courses taught by distinguished teachers and scholars at Yale University. The aim of the project is to expand access to educational materials for all who wish to learn."

"Each course includes a full set of class lectures produced in high-quality video accompanied by such other course materials as syllabi, suggested readings, exams, and problem sets. The lectures are available as downloadable videos, and an audio-only version is also offered. In addition, searchable transcripts of each lecture are provided."
