Many of the Walter Lewin Lectures on Physics at MIT have been shown for over six years on UWTV in Seattle, reaching an audience of about four million people. Lewin personally responded to hundreds of e-mail requests that he received per year from UWTV viewers. For fifteen years he was on MIT Cable TV, with programs aired 24 hours per day helping freshmen with their weekly homework assignments. Lewin also teaches video courses on Newtonian Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, and Vibrations and Waves, which can be viewed from the MIT OpenCourseWare web site. His MIT lectures for science teachers and for middle school students can be viewed on MIT World. Various lecturers all around the world make use of these lectures to teach their students.

Reviews and comments:
Thank you Sir,
I just saw your lessons.I am very happy to see and will continue to watch all your lessons.
I am a former mathematics teacher. You are a great model and inspiration for anyone interested in teaching.
I hope some day in the near future wonderfull human beings like you Walter could be reachable for others interested in knowing beauty of life. I love physics, but now in my 30´s I´m looking for the teacher I ever wish thinking..."is it late for me?"
I love your teaching style Sir!
Mr. Lewin, I stumbled on one of your lectures, "The Wonders of Electricity and Magnetism" on the MIT Open site.
You briefly glanced over the question of what is electricity and you brushed it aside. I would like to know your definition or explanation of that elusive phenomenon Energy-Electricity-Gravity-Magnetism. I would be forever grateful to you for the enlightenment on those subjects.
I have done studies on the same topics and have come to my own conclusions, so I want to know if I am right.
Walter, you Rock! you made my physics much simple to understand, Be cool.
i am from india studying at home . i wholeheartly saying that walter lewin was the best physics teacher i ever seen
I am a Doctoral student in Dowling College. My research interest is integration of Informational and Communication Technology in physics Education. After watching your lectures, I think that teaching with technology is not as effective as a teacher demonstration with lecture in classroom.
We have translated this entire course for you from English into 11 languages.
