Many of these are really good and available on Youtube. Here are a couple on protein folding: the lecturer spends much of the time discussing the differences between Rosetta and other approaches to protein folding (FoldIt gets a mention too).

MIT OpenCourseWare Biological Chemistry II (lectures 13 and 14)

Great find!

This is a great overview of protein structure prediction! He moves very quickly through these lectures and covers a lot of material, but I bet a more thorough reading list for the course can be found on the OpenCourseWare website.

Foldit mention

On the first video after 47'51"

After describing 2 methods of prediction (statistics and physics), he mentions a 3th approach: playing Foldit !
