Lately I have been researching how other institutions deliver online or hybrid courses.  In my search I ran across an interesting and informative article on by Justin Pot titled “6 Really Good Sites with FREE Video Lectures from Top US Colleges. In his conclusion he states,
The Internet’s changed the world, and the availability of free university courses on the Internet is one of the greatest examples of this I can think of.    Not so long ago the knowledge imparted on students during university lectures was accessible only to those who could afford to pay tuition. Today information is increasingly free, and I for one think society is better for it.
I have to say I agree.  In his article Pot reviewed the following sites that offer free video lectures from Top US colleges that I have looked at and found very useful:
I thought I would add to the list and mention a few other resources I have reviewed recently.
Along with the resources mentioned above, I also want to note a few other great resources I often use when looking for educational materials.

As I find more resources for online educational resources, I will continue adding them.  If you have one that is not on the list, let me know!
