Actually, there are many universities represented here. At OpenCulture.com, there is a curated list of links to university courses online.
Of course, the best basic resource for this remains the iTunes University where you can subscribe to podcasts, both video and audio of the actual courses.
Some of the best I’ve seen related to music include offerings by Stanford, UC Berkely, and MIT. Yale has a good music history survey course. The MIT website hosts course materials including class descriptions, materials, and lessons!
Stanford famously posts their iPhone programming course online. Streaming on my Boxee Box, I’ve watched lectures by Ge Wang, the programmer/developer that has created some of the most successful music iPhone apps.
These aren’t courses made for the internet- these are the actual university classes. Quite a resource.
