Imagine sitting in a remote corner of the world and having access to Circuits and Electronics, Linear Algebra, Physics, and more at MIT. The entire 1,800-course curriculum of MIT will be available free of charge by year's end. Information Week's W. David Gardner gives details in MIT to put its entire curriculum online free of charge.
Think of the possibilities. Already 1.5 million log into MIT's OpenCourseWare (OCW) site. It's actions like these that give "life-long learning" new meaning. Now, infirm, remote, shy, financially disadvantaged, or just plain curious can get the equivalent of a degree from MIT.
Kudos, MIT. Even without course credit, the free education is, as they say, "priceless."
