These video streamed presentations cover a variety of academic disciplines, and the online format allows anyone interested to access the materials any time, view the presentation multiple times, and print handouts when available. Transcripts are provided for many of these presentations, either with or without PowerPoint slides. More recent recordings feature closed captioning.
