    Lightbulb Free University Courses at MIT!

    Massachusetts Institute of Technology is offering a lot of free courses for "self-learners".

    At the moment about 700 courses, but it is obviously only the beginning.

    So far, it seems only a few courses have any useful information. But I noticed some of the courses have full video footage of all the lectures.

    At least when it comes to Computer Science, MIT is among the best Universities in the world, if not the best. I guess Technology is where MIT really shines, but their free "Anthropology" courses seem worthless.


    MIT's OpenCourseWare

    "MIT OCW is a content-rich Web site that is 35 gigabytes in size; offering access to 701 courses that contain 11,425 HTML pages, 13,973 unique PDF pages, and 8,805 images -- overall, 38,977 total files for use by MIT's global audience. All of this is made available through the generosity of 447 MIT faculty, with many more signed on for future publication cycles."

    Anybody with an aptitude for biology can shine in Anthro. To shine at MIT you need to be a math whiz and like physics-engineering. You wouldn't want to study Anthro. at MIT.
