Yes. You log on to their virtual classroom and hear the lecture and see the slides, there is a chat room, but they can’t see or hear you. (It is live not pre-recorded).
You need to register (see below) and then choose your course. The full course list and timetable is below too. They last about 90 minutes, and are very accessible.
