Open Yale Courses

Just found Open Yale Courses

Courses provide free and open access to seven 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.

Open Yale Courses reflects the values of a liberal arts education. Yale’s philosophy of teaching and learning begins with the aim of training a broadly based, highly disciplined intellect without specifying in advance how that intellect will be used.

One thought on “Open Yale Courses

  1. I was introduced to the site a few weeks ago, since then I have been a constant visitor. The Political philosophy and Religious studies lectures seem to attract me the most.

    Excellent presentations pregnant with informed thoughts, although I disagree with some of the conclusions drawn, early morning listening is still a must.

    Well done Yale.
