Princeton Creates University Channel

The Chronicle: Daily news: 07/28/2005 -- 01(for subscribers): "Prominent scholars regularly make public-policy speeches on campuses, expounding on timely topics or sharing their latest research findings. But usually the only way to catch the talks is to be in the right room at the appointed hour. Now a new Web service run by Princeton University is offering lectures from several universities free online, via streaming video or as audio podcasts.

The service, called the University Channel, is also working with cable-television companies to distribute some of the lectures over cable systems. So far the site offers recordings of nearly 30 speeches or events, including talks on 'The End of the Cold War' and 'The Future of Social Security.'"
