Applications of Academic Earth in educationAcademic Earth is a very important website for educators . I personally find it very interesting especially if you are engaged in a life long learning experience which I think every educator should be involved with . I have just finished downloading all the lectures of Computer science and programming course by Eric Grimsom, John Guttag . This is a great way to self educate and develop your basic knowledge about certain topics and issues . I hope you would give it a try and see by yourself .
