Academic Earth

A new OCW-like site called Academic Earth looks promising. Not only do I like the content, but also I adore the simple and clean design. Have you tried to navigate through ANY top university's website? Painful.

Ludlow launched Academic Earth with the goal of building a user-friendly platform for educational video that would let anyone be able to freely access instruction from the scholars and guest lecturers at the leading academic universities. The site offers 60 full courses and 2,395 total lectures (almost 1300 hours of video) from Yale, MIT, Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, and Princeton that can be browsed by subject, university, or instructor through a user-friendly interface.

I got this via TechCrunch.
