Academic Earth

AcademicEarth.org

Like it or not, almost everyone has thought about attending one of the best universities in the world and gaining that coveted first class education. It's no secret however, that these places are extraordinarily difficult to gain admission to and they also come with a hefty price tag.

Academic Earth is a website which offers video lectures from professors at high ranking universities. From MIT to Stanford, from Science to English lectures, the website offers a wide variety of subjects from a selection of different places.

Get that Ivy Education without the Ivy cost!

  7. GREAT site! And these universities are so good BECAUSE of their price tag and the fact that a spot is sought after. I go to the top (upper secondary) school where I live. Some teachers are, of course, great. However it is mostly the students willing to learn on their own that is making the score so great. Maybe it is more motivating, but in the end it is all on your own shoulders..

  25. ^ No, it isn't. With that being said, I have previously watched a (Stanford I think?) professor's Newtonian Mechanics lecture here. It is a great website.
