No, but there are "work arounds". However, it takes a full hour to
download a lecture as it can only be downloaded in realtime. And they
are hundreds of megabytes in size. Downloading is impractical.

I have tried VLC, it does not play these videos at higher speed. I
think that pitch-control is already built into the newest VLCs.

Depends on the student. I like x1.6 speed. Most like x2.0.
