Here’s another great example of the kind of free education that can be found on the web today. Yale University has published all of the lecture videos, the syllabus, and the required texts for Professor David Blight’s course Civil War & Reconstruction Era 1845 – 1877. The course can be viewed on YouTube EDU or you can download the video and audio files through Open Yale Courses where you can also find the course syllabus and required readings list.
Embedded below is the introduction to the course.
