Academic Earth - hours of free lectures online


Academic Earth is an organization founded with the goal of giving everyone on earth access to a world-class education. If you can't go to university and follow lectures there the traditional way, there's plenty of stuff on this website for you to enlarge your horizons!

As more and more high quality educational content becomes available online for free, we ask ourselves, what are the real barriers to achieving a world class education? At Academic Earth, we are working to identify these barriers and find innovative ways to use technology to increase the ease of learning.

We are building a user-friendly educational ecosystem that will give internet users around the world the ability to easily find, interact with, and learn from full video courses and lectures from the world's leading scholars. Our goal is to bring the best content together in one place and create an environment that in which that content is remarkably easy to use and in which user contributions make existing content increasingly valuable.
