Check out Open Culture, at <a href="http://www.openculture.com/" target="_blank">www.openculture.com</a>. It comprises links to lots of free courses (including courses at Yale), books, audio books, language learning courses, videos, textbooks, and loads more besides.<br>
Access to the site, and to almost all of the content, is free. Though there are some optional extras, which cost money, such as the ability to print out chapters from certain books (you can still read them on screen for free, and copy the text to your clipboard).<br><br><br>
Check out amazing cultural memorabilia, like the Rolling Stones singing a jingle for Rice Krispies, Carl Sandburg appearing on "What's My Line?", Carl Sagan's last TV interview, Orson Wells on The Merv Griffin show a few hours before his death, David Bowie singing "Little Drummer Boy" with Bing Crosby, and much, much more.

You are welcome. If you'd care to share which courses or other aspects of this site are of particular interest to you, I'd be interested in knowing that. Just curious. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Wow, what an awesome site! I found Coffee Break Spanish through them just now; it looks really fun. I have been wanting to learn a little Spanish, and this is in 15 minute segments, perfect for my ADD head. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> And it's free on Itunes.<br><br>
I also saw A UC Berkley course on ancient philosophy that looks interesting. And the science videos. One 2.5 minute one showed the year of the moon, all the phases. Pretty cool. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
Thanks for posting it, I definitely bookmarked it. Tons of stuff on there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
ETA: Look at this, the first animated film, made more than 100 years ago, and it is still funny today!<br><br>
