I just came across a fabulous site called TedTalks which has videos of people with innovative ideas about various subjects. For example I'm watching Richard Baraniuk (watch here);
"Richard Baraniuk is a Rice University professor with a giant vision: to create a free, global online education system. In this presentation, he introduces Connexions, the open-access publishing system that's changing the landscape of education by providing free coursework and educational materials to everyone in the world."
These talks can be downloaded onto your ipod/mobile phone as an mp3 file or you can see the video on your PC. I think they would be perfect for advanced level students, especially those studying at college or university.
I found this site at St Clare's English Blog.
