Go to MIT for free

This is pretty cool:

MIT to put its entire curriculum online free of charge:

On Tuesday, school officials revealed plans to make available the university’s entire 1,800-course curriculum by year’s end. Currently, some 1.5 million online independent learners log on the MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) site every month and more than 120 universities around the world have inaugurated their own sites for independent learners. MIT has more than 1,500 course curriculums available online to date.

  1. Okay, that’s incredible. Is the degree as important as the knowledge? I have a PhD, but so do several hundred thousand other Americans. I’ll definitely download it. Something to read when I’m in a nursing home hooked to a cyborg nurse someday.

    U(you) C(see) Lotsa Asians there, too, but my worst two memories of UCLA was when Troy Aikman strode onto the Cotton Bowl field in 1989? and whipped Arkansas all day. And the second was the ’95 NCAA final? when UCLA also whomped the Razorbacks. Ah well, at least it wasn’t USC, and the Bruins have great school colors.
