The University Channel has just been launched in the US and will provide access to a broad range of video and audio content. The idea is that guest lectures, discussions and seminars will be hosted online for open access by the wider public. In addition, broadcast quality versions of some of the sessions will be provided for cable TV stations. At the moment, the numbers of lectures are pretty small, but given that more and more universities are now routinely webcasting such events, there should be a fairly rapid growth.
If you want to know more or even view some of the content, please visit
In addition, the best example I know of one institution's efforts in this field is that of UC Berkeley. Have a look at the recent events on the link below, but also, more importantly, the archives pages.
