Lectures and Courses from Great Universities

I've mentioned Open Culture a few times on this blog because it often has videos and stories of interest to educators. One of the outstanding elements of Open Culture is it's collection of free online courses and lectures from great universities. The collection contains roughly 200 free audio and video downloads. The collections contains lectures and courses in the humanities and sciences.

Applications for Education
The Open Culture collection of lectures and courses is a good place to find interesting content for your own professional learning. The collection might also contain something that you can recommend to a high school student that has a strong interest in a particular subject area.
