Online and free university courses
Open University, Duke, Yale, Harvard, Columbia, Oxford, Cambridge, and a number of other universities have podcast-format free courses available on their websites which are worth investigation and consideration. Some have a number of lectures available as audio or video files. We recommend iTunesU, at least for Windows and Mac users. Courses are usually audio or video, and don't necessarily require an iDevice of any sort; iTunes or QuickTime (standard iTunes install) are usually sufficient.
