MIT OpenCourseWare

In 2011, MIT OpenCourseWare celebrated its first decade of making teaching materials used in MIT undergraduate and graduate courses available on the web, free of charge, to any user anywhere in the world. OCW is not a degree-granting or credit-bearing initiative, but a large-scale, web-based publication of MIT course materials. Educators are encouraged to use materials for curriculum development, and self-learners may draw on materials for self-study or supplementary use, including learning resources specially developed for high school students.

Recently, OCW launched study groups associated with OCW courses in collaboration with OpenStudy; a new series, OCW Scholar courses; and OCW LectureHall, a new iPhone application that provides an enhanced experience for viewing OCW lectures on that platform.
