Later this month, the University will begin posting full videos of lectures from select courses to its website and YouTube, making them free to anyone interested in the material. With this move, NYU will join schools like MIT and Carnegie Mellon that have pioneered the practice. However, in a much more visionary twist, the school will also experiment with offering some online courses to NYU undergraduates for credit. Students would watch all of the lectures online, freeing the professor for more small-group meetings and personalized instruction.
