MIT's OpenCourseware Opens Up Officially

from the in-case-you-hadn't-noticed dept

I'm not sure why they bothered having an "official launch" of this, as it's already been running for quite some time (we covered some its early successes last month). However, MIT has now officially launched their OpenCourseWare offering to the world. You can now freely download course materials and videos from about 500 MIT courses - with just about all MIT courses expected to go online by 2007. The next big question is whether any other universities will follow suit. The folks at MIT say they're happy to have one imitator already, as the Fulbright Economics Teaching Program in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam is working on a similar education sharing program. Anyway, what are you waiting for? Go get your MIT learn on.
