Can You Help Me Find Classroom Lectures?
September 17, 2016 12:37 PM   Subscribe

I am in search of recorded classroom lectures available online - preferably high school or middle school level (though college is okay if it's not crazy difficult like Nuclear Physics or Advanced Shakespeare). More details inside, if necessary:

I'm seeking these out to practice interpreting them, so I need to be able to hear and mostly understand the lectures and/or discussion. I have searched common terms on youtube: "high school lecture" and "[subject] lecture" etc and have found a few, but often they're poorly recorded or have terrible audio, or have super-fast speakers, or consist of the class getting organized for most of the video, etc... I know about Khan Academy and just discovered LearnersTV. Any other resources you can suggest? (or similar educational resources, like podcasts you'd recommend?) Thanks in advance!

MIT OpenCourseWare has a lot of intro-level college lectures, generally quite clearly recorded.

These AP World History lectures (Professor Richman) on are clear and understandable, and his audio is reasonably good quality. The lectures are pretty accessible and interesting too..

Be aware Chapters 1-9 have background music playing softly behind the lecture, which could be distracting to you. However, from Chapter 10 on, the music stops after the intro.

How about Crash Course? You can even get full English transcripts here.

It seems to me that the term "lecture" is less commonly used at the pre-college level. Searching youtube for high school algebra 1 class yields some possibilities.

A few more from the flipped classroom movement (that may be a helpful search term) Examples:
Bozeman Science & Math Johnson.
