MIT OpenCourseWare: a great resource!

Thought this site may be of interest to many of you. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has been making their courses available online to the public for a little over 5 years via their MITOpenCourseWare initiative, but the past year has seen a surge of interest.

What is OCW? From the OCW pages…

“…MIT OCW is a large-scale, Web-based publication of the educational materials from the MIT faculty’s courses. This unique initiative enables the open sharing of the MIT faculty’s teaching materials with educators, enrolled students, and self-learners around the world. MIT OCW provides users with open access to the syllabi, lecture notes, course calendars, problem sets and solutions, exams, reading lists, even a selection of video lectures, from 1400 MIT courses representing 34 departments and all five of MIT’s schools. The initiative will include materials from 1800 courses by the year 2008.”
