I was sondering what people's take on free online materials from institutions like MIT and Stanford are.
MIT started the trend...

And now there are many more. Stanford offers all it's seminar course videos online (at least for engineering).
Seminars & Webinars | Stanford Center for Professional Development
Also, the Indian Institute of Technology has some good lectures too.
YouTube - nptelhrd's Channel
These are the ones I have used.
Does anyone know other good free online material?
What do you guys think of this kind of thing?
Did you know about it before?
Do you, or would you use this sort of thing?
Would you use it as a substitute for acutaully attending school or class?
