#Change11 The Lecture and New Initiatives in Online Learning

Further to my post here on New Learning Initiatives and the Future of Education and Learning, I would like to explore more about video lectures.

Here is a standard Lecture http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mathematics/18-03-differential-equations-spring-2010/video-lectures/lecture-1-the-geometrical-view-of-y-f-x-y/

There are lecture notes http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mathematics/18-03-differential-equations-spring-2010/lecture-notes/

There are merits in using lecture (video lectures), when content knowledge is required for the subject domain. This is especially the case in more advanced topics in subjects such as Mathematics, Engineering and Science.

May be the MITx would make use of these formats in delivering and transmitting knowledge and information.

Here is Game Theory available from Yale University with all the video lectures.

An exciting initiative in online learning on Game Theory available from Stanford University.

So, there would be a lot of online learning programs including MOOCs available in 2012.
