There's professor at UC Berkley who is doing something kind of special and cool.
Back in 2000 he had the idea to teach physics at a very basic level. He named the course Physics for Future Presidents. Professor Richard Muller has been teaching this course for more than eight years and it's one of the most popular at Berkley. The course is designed to explain important real world science in such a way as to be understandable to students with other plans than to be scientists.
The best part is you can go to the website and download MP3's or Videos of the lectures so you can take the course too...for FREE, no university credit though.
If you have an ipod or an MP3 player and want something engaging and very interesting to listen to give it try!
