Open Culture: A Portal for Cultural and Educational Media

The site Open Culture is a growing collection of cultural and educational podcasts, videos, online courses, etc. The library of podcasts is particularly extensive and diverse and covers such areas as arts & culture, audio books, foreign language lessons, news/information, science, and technology. Many of the podcasts and videos are from universities. Open Culture's claim that someone searching for engaging content will locate it much more efficiently through their site than if they spent their time "searching with Google, Yahoo or iTunes" seems persuasive. Open Culture is accessible at http://www.oculture.com/
(Thanks to Robert Stantion, English Dept., for pointing out this site.)
