Introducing MIT World

MIT World is a free, open streaming media web site of the most significant public events at The Massachusetts institute of Technology. A project of the Professional Education Programs at MIT's School of Engineering, it features recent speakers and guests from across its campus and around the world. Sure there are a lot of lectures of the mission control/robotics stripe but you'll also browse into guests like Robert Pinksy who visited this past February. Speakers lecture on a wide variety of topics in diverse fields of Architecture, Biotechnology, History, National Security, and Media, to name a few. For instance, this past Spring (March 8) Henry Jenkins, MIT Professor of Humanities and Director of the Comparative Media Studies Program, moderated TV's New Economics with panelists David Poltrack and Jorge Schement.

Videos can be streamed on-demand to a computer, but cannot be downloaded, edited or duplicated.
