Let There Be Video

Quick game of Word Association:

Me: CAL Berkeley

You: Football Powerhouse, Oski, Physics, Computer Science, Hippies, Telegraph, Scott Orn's Alma mater, Jason Kidd, Haas

They're all right, but the newest association will be Education Innovator. You see, the kind, peace loving people at Berkeley are slowly turning the academic world on its head. They're offering video courses over the Internet. How cool is that?

You get the full Berkeley classroom experience...and it's free. Somewhere in China, Africa, Bosnia or Clear Lake, a teen age kid is getting her first Berkeley experience. So cool. This makes me a proud Bear.

Thanks for sending this in from sunny Minnesota, Mr. Greg Yeadon.
