Open Yale Courses provides free and open access to a selection of introductory courses taught by distinguished teachers and scholars at Yale University. All lectures were recorded in the Yale College classroom and are available in video, audio, and text transcript formats. The integrated web interface allows users to audit Yale undergraduate courses if they wish to. It also gives the user a variety of other options for structuring the learning process, for example downloading, redistributing, and remixing course materials.
