Listen to MIT, Yale or Stanford lectures for free

The Washington Post has an article on the rising popularity of lectures on podcasts particularly those found in iTunes U. iTunes U is a collaboration between Apple and various colleges and universities in the United States like Stanford, MIT, Yale and UC Berkley.

According to Jeffrey Selingo, materials from the different universities and colleges have been downloaded 4 million times since iTunes U was launched last spring. These lecture podcasts have also become a hit among professors since this is a way for them to reach a much bigger audience. Students benefit in being able to choose from a wide variety of courses. From psychology to architecture, from physics to information management. From art to the neurosciences.

For more information, go to Apple’s iTunes U page or go on to iTunes to start downloading.
