Communities based around Free Online Classes

Are there any iTunesU/Open Courseware communities or Forums?

There are tons of free college classes online, and I've been watching a bunch of them, but I'm often confused and need additional help on things, and the professor isn't usually available. Are there any message boards or forums where people take these classes together and talk about them? It seems like there must be, somewhere.

You might have luck searching group discussion providers directly (Yahoo Groups, Google Groups, or Usenet for example)....if all else fails, maybe initiate a group for particular courses and invite other students to join in.

It's a good question. I could swear I've seen something like this. A quick search turned up http://openstudy.com/ (via readwriteweb), but I cannot vouch for it one way or another.
