Open Yale Courses provides lectures and other materials from selected Yale College courses to the public free of charge via the internet. The courses span the full range of liberal arts disciplines, including humanities, social sciences, and physical and biological sciences.
The new courses range from financial theory to Cervantes` Don Quixote to environmental politics and law, the New Haven, Connecticut based university announced on Thursday.
Each course, recorded in its entirety as it was presented to Yale College students, is taught by one of the University`s most distinguished faculty members. Open Yale Courses may be accessed at http://oyc.yale.edu.
The courses are available in high definition video and audio formats and they offer the full experience of the Yale classroom.
Closed captioning is provided for each course, as well as searchable transcripts, syllabi, reading assignments, problem sets and other materials.
Interested individuals may download the video and/or audio files of Open Yale Courses and watch and listen to them at their convenience.
There are also iPhone and iPad optimised versions of the website to allow access to the lectures for those on the go.
No registration is required for these courses, and participants do not earn academic credit from Yale nor do they interact with the professors.
