Lectures, forums, panels and special events shared by the Harvard community

Based in Cambridge Massachusetts, Harvard University, celebrating its 375th anniversary in 2011, is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. Harvard University is made up of 11 principal academic units, ten faculties and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, all of which are represented in the multimedia content on the site. Open Access and interactivity are the main logics of the videolectures repositories of Harvard University: the Harvard@Home project and Harvard’s videolectures and recording databases on iTunesU and YouTube. Harvard@Home offers more than fifty programs – lectures, University panels, Alumni College forums – linked from the “Program List,” covering subjects ranging from the arts to social sciences, from history to current affairs, from literature to science and mathematics. Harvard@Home also provides technical and professional consultation to allow other institutions to create similar multimedia products. The material is also available on the Youtube Channel with its 18 playlists, which integrates the webcasts produced by the faculties with the products shared by the many related channels. Almost 2,000 videos are available covering a wide range of topics from Political Science and Law to Architecture and Medicine. 400 of them are taken from the most important university events, while more than 1,500 belong to 16 related channels, such as those belonging to the Harvard Kennedy School, the Harvard Law School, the Harvard Business Review and the Center of Public Leadership. The contributions vary in content and length, from the short intervention format of the Harvard Kennedy School, such as those of Nye on The future of Power and McGregor Burns on Moral Leadership, to the extended lecture format of the Institute of Politics, such as those held in the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum.
