I first saw this link on facebook on the I fucking love science page the other day.
“The idea is simple: to publish all of our course materials online and make them widely available to everyone.”
Dick K.P. Yue, Professor, MIT School of Engineering (http://ocw.mit.edu/about/)
MIT made all of their course content and recommended reading available online for free!
This could open up doors to learning, and potential new career paths, for so many people priced out of a university education. For me it serves as a great opportunity to explore areas of learning that were simply not available when I was at university.
The link for MIT’s free course content is http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm
MIT are looking for donations on their site to fund the OpenCourseWare project, with donations currently being matched by MathWorks.
