As a promoter of lifetime learning and having shared thoughts on how access enables ability it was great to learn via Jon Udell that a new member has joined the conversation. MIT lead the way with the MIT Open Learning Initiative. Stanford followed suite with the launch of Stanford on iTunes. Berkeley has just launched Berkeley on iTunes with a subset of those lectures available as standard RSS podcasts here. Heres hoping that more both within and without the world of academia join the conversation in the not too distant future.
