I’ve ‘taken’ quite a few courses from the University of Berkeley now, and I think the fact that it’s free is amazing!! So I thought I’d share all these free and quite interesting university lectures with you for those who aren’t familiar with the Berkely Webcasts. By the way, I think Harvard also have some online content, so you should check them out too.

You can see a full list by searching for various electronics related terms : http://webcast.berkeley.edu/new_search.php?search_value=circuits&category=all&type=both&courseid=&semesterid=&submit=Search

For electronics, Berkeley has the following Courses available for FREE!!:

EE 42/EE 100 Introduction to Digital Electronics

EE 42 - Spring 2008 - This course serves as an introduction to the principles of electrical engineering, starting from the basic concepts of voltage and current and circuit elements of resistors, capacitors, and inductors. Circuit analysis is taught using Kirchhoff’s voltage and current laws with Thevenin and Norton equivalents. Operational amplifiers with feedback are introduced as basic building blocks for amplication and filtering. Semiconductor devices including diodes and MOSFETS and their IV characteristics are covered. Applications of diodes for rectification, and design of MOSFETs in common source amplifiers are taught. Digital logic gates and design using CMOS as well as simple flip-flops are introduced. Speed and scaling issues for CMOS are considered. The course includes as motivating examples designs of high level applications including logic circuits, amplifiers, power supplies, and communication links.

Thanks!

MIT Has something Similar to this, their’s are good as well.  Google MIT OpenCourseware.

I am more then willing to to test your Multi-Touch programs on Linux, PM me if you have something.  If you’re looking for something faster then AS3 and Easier then C, try Python!

Thanks for this post!  I’ll have to check these out.  I’m sure it will be very helpful.  Hopefully they don’t assume prior knowledge or go insanely fast like some of the mathematics/IS classes from over at MIT.  I realize that those classes are free and they’re from *MIT*, but seriously if they’re going to post them to the public at least make them usable for the public otherwise they’re a waste to a large degree.  The majority of the population won’t be able to keep up with the pace that the MIT classes go at, nor is the material for the feint of heart most times.

Then again I need to look at these classes from the prospective that the professors are teaching a classroom of students whom have taken the pre-requisites for each area they are teaching.  Most basic math, computer science, and engineering courses are assumed to have already been taken in most of the MIT lessons I’ve seen.  I have a roku box that has some of the MIT classes and most of the material is gone through at an astounding pace.  Students that pass those courses, let alone get into MIT deserve it.  Now, lets actually see them put some of that knowledge to good use.  Create some small businesses and actually push this country into the 21st like it needs to be instead of working for Fortune 500s who want to sit on patents all day long.
