Sample a Yale Education

Yale apparently provides a service called Open Yale, which currently has seven full courses available in MP3, Flash and QuickTime format online. There's one class each in Astronomy, English, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science, Psychology and Religious Studies available.

The other day I listened to the first two lectures from the Religious Studies offering: Introduction to the Hebrew Bible. Very interesting, though clearly done from a Religious Studies not Christian of Jewish theology point of view.

Most of the classes look interesting to one extent or another. If you feel like dusting off our academics via iPod, check it out.

What, they're giving it away for free? Why pay all that tuition? Is it just for the privilege of taking final exams and going to the keg parties?

I think if you're actually a student you also get:

-a selection of more than seven classes

-a degree if you complete enough courses

-potential access to coeds

But it does certainly seem like even the limited give-away is a pretty sweet deal...

I'd say so. Seven courses in a variety of disciplines? That's a freshman year courseload! One year free online!

And I'm not gonna touch the one about the coeds at Yale...?!?!
