MIT online classes

(unless the server crashes)

Here's some pretty cool news. MIT has unveiled plans to make their entire curriculum online by the end of the year. Over 1800 courses (so far they're a bit over 1500).

Per the article from the CSM via CBS, "The MIT site, along with companion sites that translate the material into other languages, now average about 1.4 million visits per month from learners "in every single country on the planet," Ms. Margulies says. Those include Iraq, Darfur, "even Antarctica," she says. "We hear from [the online students] all the time with inspirational stories about how they are using these materials to change their lives. They're really, really motivated."
