Academic Earth seems like a pretty impressive webpage. It doesn't have much new, and still has far too few courses on it, but it does do a good job of finding college lectures and courses from around other sites, and it also does a good job of rating talks. It is fairly easy to locate the best of the lectures and avoid the worst.

This physics lecture is really how physics should be taught. Most physics courses seem to get bogged down in mathematics without ever giving you much understanding of the world around you. He seems to move seemlessly from talking about abstract concepts, to real world examples of how we have used the ideas.
