Interesting.  We've started to record some classes and place the audio online.  
For the past three years or so the presentation graphics for each of our 
Concordia University Wisconsin computer science courses have been available 
online.  You might take a quick look at http://www.cs.cuw.edu for the things 
we are doing.  I'm particularly proud of the course CSC-175... :-)  But that 
one isn't being recorded this semester.

We not only are making our class materials available, but this provides an 
opportunity for students who do miss a class to have the notes and 
assignments.  Most of my CS students will print the presentation graphics 
before class and use the printouts for taking notes.  Works well.
