JetBlue and Virgin America now offer a more educational form of entertainment while you fly — complimentary college lectures.

In December, JetBlue began streaming recorded lectures from the nation’s most prestigious courses, and in February Virgin America also began streaming audio and video of lectures from top professors.

These lectures are a nicer alternative to your usual in-flight entertainment of sitcoms and the latest issue of SkyMall magazine — at least now you can learn something.
