One Man’s Blog points out that MIT has joined the online learning bandwagon and is attempting to offer the complete course material for every class online for free. The program will be called “MIT Open Courseware.” Susan Hockfield, MIT president, describes the program:
OpenCourseWare expresses in an immediate and far-reaching way MIT’s goal of advancing education around the world. Through MIT OCW, educators and students everywhere can benefit from the academic activities of our faculty and join a global learning community in which knowledge and ideas are shared openly and freely for the benefit of all.
