'I go to MIT'

Mas_columns

Tell that to your friends and they'll laugh so hard at you.

"You? You can't even spell MIT."

But guess what?

You'll have the last laugh.

Because a few years ago, MIT started an ambitious project to eventually put all of its courses on the internet — for free.

It's called OpenCourseWare (OCW) and anyone — from any computer in any country in the world — can now partake of:

    • Course syllabi

    • Lectures — in both printed and video form

    • Homework assignments

    • Exams

for 1,200 MIT classes.

Materials for courses in the Harvard–MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology, MIT Biological Engineering and MIT Sloan School of Management are also available.

So you see — you weren't putting everyone on after all, were you?
