Harvard, Yale Physics videos

  1. Sep 1, 2009 #1
    Hey y'all:

    This is a sort of follow up to the thread: 'New Yale Internet Physics resource'

    In addition to PHYS 200 - Fundamentals of Physics, Fall 2006, they have put up the videos and materials for ASTR 160 - Frontiers and Controversies in Astrophysics, Spring 2007 at:


    A full list of available courses (more to come are promised) is at:

    Harvard has a whole buttload of courses, etc on video freely available. Not only are the 1975 Sydney Coleman lectures for Physics 253: Quantum Field Theory available, but several other of his lectures. Tons of other stuff as well-- check out the following links and don't forget to come out for food and daylight occasionally:

    General Page:

    Loeb Lectures:

    Monday Colloquium Archive

    most of these are streaming in flash (I think)... but if you want to DL them in order to watch at your off-line convenience, options include (as previously mentioned by others) 'Download Helper' - a free plugin for Mozilla Firefox, also various .flv downloaders (these are the same kind of things used to download youtube videos). .flv is a flash format file. You should be able to play .flv files in windows with the correct drivers installed, otherwise there are many freely available utilities to convert file formats. YMMV.

    Just wanted to point out the Yale courses are also available in Quicktime (mov) format. The Shankar physics videos are really good...
