Updated List of Links for Free Online Lectures and Learning

It is possible to get a world class education free online, using web resources provided by the best universities and educators in the world. How much longer will parents pay universities tens of thousands of dollars a year and more, to provide their children with a world-class indoctrination and a slum-class education, when parents themselves could provide a top class education online for free -- and skip the crippling indoctrination (academic lobotomy) altogether?

Most of these links lead to university level lectures and entire courses available at no charge online from some of the best universities in the world. Some links go to a wide range of other multimedia learning materials, and some lead to online academic texts and notes. Most lectures are in video, some in audio, and a few in slideshow format. This is not an exhaustive list for free online higher ed. lectures and learning, but as of this date you can be sure that all links are active.
