Academic Earth Video Lectures

professorStarted by two Ivy League grads, Academic Earth features video courses by professors from the nation's top universities on a variety of topics in science, as well as in the humanities and social sciences. Topics in the sciences include Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Math, and Physics. Though the courses are undergraduate level, they may be interesting to watch, for instance, if they cover a subfield in which one may be interested, but never pursued in depth. Courses in other disciplines which may also be of interest for Boulder Labs researchers include "Science, Magic, and Religion" from Courtenay Raia of the UCLA Dept. of History, "Game Theory" by Benjamin Polak of the Yale Political Science Dept., and "Darwin's Legacy" from William Durham of the Stanford Dept. of History. All lectures require Adobe Flash Player, and you may rate the lectures on a scale of A through F. Relive your college days at Academic Earth!
