Unbelievably sophisticated developments for e-lectures from Yale University

YaleCourses are an excellent education innovation. They are uploaded regularly with clear sound and image - a plus. But they are also subtitled - which is fantastic. But the most amazing thing is that there is an interactive transcript accompanying the film. You can search within the text for keywords, you can click on that line and the video jumps to that place. It is the future of teaching developments and they are streets ahead.
Check out this Judith Butler lecture to see it in action.
Well done, Yale.

UPDATE: Apparently, the interactive transcript is a Google/YouTube development, not Yale's - but still...yay!
