MIT Coursework - online, free!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/2270648.stm

Exerpts from the article:
________________
"Many other colleges launched online degree courses aimed at anyone with a modem and a big wallet.

But MIT has taken a completely different direction with a project called OpenCourseWare (OCW) that could stop the trend of commercialising online education dead in its tracks."

"The first group of courses are set to be published on the internet on 30 September, including subjects like anthropology, biology, chemistry and computer science. "

"This is just the tip of the iceberg. MIT wants to start nothing short of a global revolution in education."
