Searched for video recordings of college-level courses in English linguistics, but couldn’t find any. There are courses on natural language processing (because computer science), and, predictably, numerous courses on English as a foreign language; there are some introductory courses on linguistics in general; but nothing properly substantial on English linguistics per se — phonetics/phonology, dialects/sociolinguistics, history of English, grammar/morphology/syntax, etc. Compared to computer science, the video record of how English linguistics is taught is virtually non-existent.

A couple of interesting finds:

- Essentials of Linguistics, a recent — and decent — introductory book by a Canadian author, with many chapters containing short video lectures
- recordings of lectures of Dr. Ted Sherman, professor at Middle Tennessee State University, primarily about English literature
