UC Berkeley leads the world in the use of digital technology on campus by making course webcasts and podcasts widely available to the Cal community and beyond. Users can access live and on-demand webcasts of courses and events in streaming video and audio. Course favorites such as Astronomy 10, Physics 10, Psychology 1, History 5, Philosophy 7, and dozens more are only a click away.
As part of its commitment to the dissemination of knowledge for the public benefit, UC Berkeley also partnered with Google last September to become the first university in the world with a Google Video (now YouTube) Website.
