MIT OpenCourseWare Continues

MIT has released OpenCourseWare to the public in a pilot version today. The BBC has a story about the release. Here’s a link to the official OpenCourseWare web site.

For a final quote:

“There is no revenue objective for OCW, ever. It will always be free,” insisted Ms Margulies.

MIT staff point out that if this initiative is successful, and other institutions follow, it will put the net back on track towards its original goal of sharing information and knowledge around the world, rather than selling CDs and t-shirts.
