Academic Earth, a social entrepreneurship venture focused on expanding the availability of high-quality educational opportunities for people around the globe, announced the launch of its website at http://academicearth.org. The site has been in public beta since late January. Academic Earth offers free access to online video of full courses and guest lectures from leading educational institutions including Yale, Harvard, and MIT.

The catalog of video lectures, spanning nearly all major academic subjects, contains 60 full courses and 2,395 overall lectures. The lectures are presented through a user-friendly interface that allows visitors to browse by Subject, University, or Instructor.

Visitors have reported a wide variety of uses for the site. Students have used it to supplement existing coursework, educators to study the teaching methods of other instructors, and lifelong learners for personal enrichment. Of particular interest have been the large collections of business, computer science, and engineering lectures, which have been utilized by professionals and job seekers.
