Study for free at Yale in Fall 2007

Yale University, the third-oldest institution of higher education in the United States, plans to deliver a pilot of seven undergraduate courses to the public free of charge, via the Internet. This is not a brand-new announcement, it was made public in September 2006. But it is nonetheless very interesting. Ultimately, the University aims to offer several dozen undergraduate courses spanning the range of liberal arts disciplines, including humanities, social science, and physical and biological sciences. Yale communicates that each course will include a full set of class lectures produced in high-quality video. These lectures will be searchable and accompanied by text transcriptions, syllabi, and other course materials.

The first seven courses will be produced till June 2007 and will be available online starting in the fall of 2007.

The first three courses being taped are:

* Fundamentals of Physics, with Ramamurti Shankar, John Randolph Huffman Professor and Chair of Physics
* Introduction to Political Philosophy, with Steven Smith, Alfred Cowles Professor of Political Science
* Introduction to the Old Testament, with Christine Hayes, Robert F. and Patricia Ross Weis Professor of Religious Studies

Those whose courses are slated for taping in spring 2007 include Charles Bailyn, Thomas E. Donnelley Professor of Astronomy; Paul Bloom, Professor of Psychology; and Langdon Hammer, Professor and Chair of English.
