It’s official. University of California, San Diego, unlike its sister campuses at Berkeley and Los Angeles, does not plan to make its course podcasts available indefinitely. Instead it will continue its current policy of removing the course podcasts from its website at the end of each academic term. This is the text of a e-mail I recently received from the UCSD Media Center.
It is University policy that podcast are removed from the listing once the quarter ends. Faculty can opt to leave the podcast posted, but most do not.
The moral: if you see a course on the UCSD website that interests you, download it now. Tomorrow may be too late. (Classes for the fall term start next week.)
