MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) has worked to share the best educational resources from MIT freely and openly, creating remarkable new opportunities for millions of learners and educators around the world.
MIT has launched an open courseware project since 2001. However, due to the COVID19 pandemic, MIT OCW receives tens of millions of visits.
OCW contains 2500 courses from mechanical engineering to the literature. MIT President L. Rafael Reif says that “The idea for OCW came from MIT faculty: to give away MIT’s course materials to the world online. The decision to move forward with this bold idea belonged to MIT’s 15th president, Chuck Vest. Institute leaders could not have known it at the time, but in creating OCW, MIT launched a quiet but profound educational revolution. It unleashed the global open sharing movement, helping to pave the way for the worldwide phenomenon of open digital learning.”
MIT OpenCourseWare provides a wide range of course opportunities not only in engineering but also in social science.
