According to a recent Chronicle of Higher Education article, professors’ lectures are gaining popularity on YouTube as more colleges are signing agreements with the site to set up official “channels.”
The article also notes other video-sharing web sites such as Big Think which opened this week and FORAtv. These web sites provides short video clip interviews with academics, authors, politicians, etc.

I posted a demo of how to make all the UCB video lectures on youtube browseable, searchable, watchable and portable using a grazr over at http://blogs.open.ac.uk/Maths/ajh59/012375.html
This means the whole UCB on youtube ‘curriculum’ can be bundled and embedded in a web page using a single widget 🙂
Have you ever heard of the TED organization? Their YouTube channel, TEDtalksDirector, has interesting videos from professors. For interesting videos not made by professors, check out YouTubeStars.com – a site that promotes videomakers and their videos.
