YouTube professors

The Jan. 25 Chronicle of Higher Education has an article about colleges which have put lectures online. Colleges can set up "channels" which they can brand with their logos and colors. YouTube has been surprised by how popular the video lectures have been. One academic also said it improves the professor's lectures if they know they're being taped.

To find university channels, change the search box in YouTube to search "channel" rather than "video." You can then search for a specific school, or search for "college" or "university."

The article also mentioned a couple of new sites:
Big Think has video interviews with academics and other thinkers.
FORA.tv calls itself "the thinking man's YouTube" and streams lectures and debates.
