MIT goes universal!


I have a great news to share with all of you. MIT or Massachusetts Institute of Technology has launched an Open Course Ware -a free and open educational resource for educators, students, and self-learners around the world. OCW supports MIT's mission to advance knowledge and education, and serve the world in the 21st century. It is true to MIT's values of excellence, innovation, and leadership.
MIT OCW:
Is a publication of MIT course materials
Does not require any registration
Is not a degree-granting or certificate-granting activity
Does not provide access to MIT faculty

about MIT OCW...

An user's words-"We live in a very rural area. Access to quality educational materials is a 225-mile drive to the nearest library of any significance. The dearth of teaching materials is more profound... Thank you so much for OCW." -- Self-learner from Kentucky

Now you can join any course thought at MIT and learn... what a revolutionary idea. True meaning of a university is just being truly realized. I hope other leading universities would soon follow the lead...

Dear poets learn about the major poets in the literature course offered by MIT

Lets learn together, lets grow together!

Best wishes!
