Not exactly news. Students at the ANU have been able to download lectures
in MP3 for a year or so. I expect other universities do the same thing. To
record a lecture I log on to the PC built into the lecture theatre podium.
The system has the timetable and so knows what lecture is on when and is
connected to the room PA system. The digital audio is automatically
uploaded to the university web site for students to stream or download. It
works very well (most of the time).
The lectures are normally only available to the students undertaking the
particular unit, but I have suggested some be made public. Also in the past
I have done some lectures as web slides with synchronized audio. But found
it is just as convenient to manually step through the slides while
listening to the audio.
