Biblical Studies from Yale

Ever wondered what gets taught at those fancy schmancy ivy league schools. That is, what gets taught beyond teaching the students how to speak in a funny off-but-not-quite british accent and how to tie sweaters around one's neck before going to pick up Buffy to play a round of golf (or tennis)?

Well, now you can find out for yourself from Academic Earth. Academic Earth also has lectures and entire courses from other not so fancy schmancy classes available for your viewing pleasure.

Here is the link to professor Christine Hayes' Old Testament Class. Personally, from the description of the lectures it sounds like literary criticism masked as scientific evidence. Though, some of the lectures do look interesting, and I'm sure something can be learned that was not already known.
