online lectures on practically everything

i recently stumbled onto academicearth.org, an online collection of university lectures & courses. A cursory glance makes it look like they are primarily from Harvard and Yale, so an American-centric site, perhaps, but there is a lot of potential here.

i begun watching Professor Paul Fry's Introduction to Literary Theory because i never managed to take a theory class during my undergraduate career. Some theory came up in various courses, sure, but i would like to expand my knowledge, and this seems like a good starting point. If the site contained a reading list to go along with the course, that would be even better.

After i finish these videos, i'm going to watch a set that have nothing to do with literature. Maybe something to do with biology, or physics. i think i'm definitely going to enjoy using this resource.
