March 12th, 2007

The smh reports “the Massachusetts Institute of Technology will become by year’s end the first US university to offer all of its roughly 1800 courses free on the internet, a school official says.”We started this project because MIT believes that one of the best ways to advance education around the world is through the internet,” said Anne Margulies, head of online curriculum”.Further,”MIT launched its “OpenCourseWare” program in 2003 and already offers hundreds of courses online. A small number of other US schools are following suit. Stanford put some classes on line last year and Bryn Mawr plans to do so soon.Last month, 1.5 million users went to the MIT course site, sampling offerings like Cognitive Robotics, Inventions and Patents, and Superconducting Magnets.Most users – 60 per cent come from outside the United States – gravitate toward the subjects MIT is best-known for: computer science, physics and mathematics, Margulies said”.
