MathOverflow is a question and answer site for professional mathematicians. It's 100% free, no registration required.

It can be difficult to learn mathematics on your own from textbooks, and I often wish universities videotaped their mathematics courses and distributed them for free online. Fortunately, some universities do that (albeit to a very limited extent), and I hope we can compile here a list of all the mathematics courses one can view in their entirety online.

Please only post videos of entire courses; that is, a speaker giving one lecture introducing a subject to the audience should be off-limits, but a sequence of, say, 30 hour-long videos, each of which is a lecture delivered in a class would be very much on-topic.

Some list can be fetched from the ancient post here:mathoverflow.net/questions/1714/best-online-math-videos –  Unknown Feb 5 '11 at 19:00
+100 if I could. I always wanted to have them in summers. –  Unknown Feb 5 '11 at 23:11
Please, share these videos also on MathOnline, in the video section! :-) mathonline.andreaferretti.it –  Andrea Ferretti Apr 8 '11 at 11:39

A Computability Theory course by Bart Kastermans. These lectures followed Robert Soare's new book, which is not yet published, so they are temporarily behind a password; however, Bart's website indicates that the passwords are available upon request. (In any case they will be open to the public eventually, I think.)

This collection has a mixture of French and English, but here you can find videos given at the Bicentennial of the Birth of Evariste Galois (Bicentennaire de la naissance d'Evariste Galois) at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris.

If it's not too gauche to plug my own course at CMU,

23 lectures on Analysis of Boolean Functions (one lecture by John Wright):

nice videos about Quantum Mechanics (By J.J.Binney -Oxford), total 27 videos with about 1 hour duration, and QFT (By David Tong - Oxford). Those videos about QM are really great here.

Would you mind giving a link ? :-) –  DamienC Dec 5 '12 at 9:18

HERE IT IS A GOOD RESOURCE OF VIDEO LECTURES CONDUCTED BY IIT'S & IISc'S. http://nptel.iitm.ac.in/courses.php?disciplineId=111

Here you find the videos of the conference "Orbits, Primitive Ideals and Quantum Groups", Weizmann Institute, Israel.

The videos are about:

  1. Finite W-algebras, by I. Losev
  2. Adapted pairs in a biparabolic subalgebra, by F. Fauquant-Millet
  3. Hopf Algebra and Root Systems, by H-J Schneider
  4. Quiver Grassmannians, by M. Reineke
  5. Quantum quasi-Shuffles, by M. Rosso
