Berkeley University Lectures Now on YouTube

I could not help but see the irony in this, Berkeley University, California has a collection of it's lectures on youtube, actually quite a few as it turns out, over 300 hours of video on it's own channel. DET NSW offcourse blocks youtube to all it's staff and students, which for many of us who champion open networked learning is indicative of an educational institution out of touch with the times and it's gen C customers.
The irony I refer to here is the lectures being broadcast from Berkeley show a form of teaching practice I though had ended in the early 1960's. This is the real thing, "talk and chalk", "sage on the stage" stuff .... On youtube they may be, but their teaching practice seems frozen in time ...
