New Online Video Education Site Features University Courses

Academic Earth is a new, ad-free online video site featuring university course lectures.  The new site seems to bridge the gap between iTunes U and YouTube, offering some of the best features from both.  Lectures are organized by subject, university, professor or playlist.  Viewers have the option to download videos to their iPod, registered users can save videos to ‘favorites’, and each video contains citation information and embed code.  Some courses even contain links to lecture notes, quizzes and assignments.
